Incompleteness Serres Sokal I 203
Incompleteness/Society/Debray/Serres/Bricmont/Socal: (M. Serres,"Paris 1800" in: M. Authier (Ed.) Elemente einer Geschichte der Wissenschaften, Frankfurt/M. 1994, p, 636f): according to Debray... societies organize themselves only under the explicit condition that they are based on something different from them, something that is beyond their definition or boundary. They cannot satisfy themselves. He describes the foundation as religious. With Gödel he completes Bergson....
SokalVsSerres: the so-called "Gödel-Debray principle" is just as irrelevant to the history of science as it is to politics.

Serres, M. Davidson Vs Serres, M. I (b) 22
A proposal boils down to interpreting the rest of the sentence that follows "believes" as a complex adverb. DavidsonVs: no human has any idea how the meanings of the individual words could be derived from that. But apparently, we understand the sentences, because we understand the words contained in them.
I (e) 95
DavidsonVsSerres: The reason why the senses are not of outstanding theoretical meaning is that the causal role they play is due to an empirical accident. The causal links between thoughts and objects of the world could also have been achieved in a very different way without it having made a difference in terms of content or veracity of the belief.
