Observability I 90
Observability / Peacocke: Thesis: o. is a property of certain terms and not of other terms - the phenomena that are crucial to the concept of observability, are the ones corresponding to the individuation of Fregean thoughts and their constituents: the phenomena of cognitive significance and the epistemic possibility - that has nothing to do with the correct use of the word "observe".
I 103
Observability / PeacockeVsQuine: does not depend on the sophistication and training of the observer nor with the level of science - ((s) because of Peacockes stronger emphasis on the perceptual component.)
