Particularization / Ramsey: instead of "what he said is true": E.g. "things that were viewed as standing in a certain relation actually stand in this relation" - ((s) but that s still in general!) - N.B.: then we can do without "true". - ((s) > Quine: Truth is used for generalization.) - Problem / Ramsey: that will not do so in everyday language. - Solution / Ramsey: we need a pro sentence (where else is a pronoun used) - pro sentence / everyday language: "Yes", "No"._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
