 Rylean Ancestors - Philosophy Dictionary of Arguments
Rylean Ancestors: is an expression by W. Sellars (Sellars, Empricism and the Philosophy of Mind, 1956, pp. 91-93) for an assumed linguistic community within a thought experiment. The language of these people is limited to expressions for publicly identifiable objects and their perceptible properties. The question is which expressions of this language should be added so that the language users are able to recognize themselves and others as thinking, observing and feeling (cf http// (11.05. 2017)). See also private language, reference, thought objects, intensional objects, intensions, propositions, individuation, introduction.
