Two Dogmas/Quine/Brandom: But the two options - fact or relation of imagination, expression of determination as belief or definition of meaning should not be considered an exhaustive alternative by the reader of "Two Dogmas".
Brandom: Both the internal and external inferential relations of a concept are pragmatically and methodologically on the same level. This is the core of the meaning holism of "Two Dogmas".
Content/Two Dogmas/Brandom: content does not need to change if the center and periphery change.
