Computation/Fodor/Lepore: Thesis: causal relationships reconstruct inferential relations. This is considered to be the hope of an association of semantics with psychology - but without a causal theory of analyticity this strategy is not available for a philosopher who connects the meaning with the inferential role in an analytical inference - (CRT ) - E.g.
