I, Ego, Self Frank I 398ff
Extra-sense/I/PerryVsCastaneda: can be recognized by others in the same way, does not explain the difference.
I 399f
I/he/reference/relation/sense/meaning: difference: Quasi-indicator attributes reference, but does not establish it.
I 402ff
I/Castaneda/Perry: not replaceable by specific labeling, when behavior is explained - "key index word" - Problem: same sentence, but different speaker: false belief "I'm making a mess ...". - Incorrect solution: "And I am the one": again a new index word. - "Lack of conceptual component" does not help: I can believe that it is me, with no specific concept of me. - False: Labelling: "the one who makes the mess" does not help, because no connection to me.
I 403
Belief/I/Perry: Solution: distinction belief-state/belief-object. - E.g. event starts at 12:00 - that means, "now!" or "already finished" or "still time". - Subject: the event beginning at 12:00 - state: "now" - specific labeling without an index is not enough.
I 414
I/individuation/Perry: The following conditions are not enough: Propositions de re, de dicto, additional conceptual feature localization in space and time, relativization on people and places, two different descriptions without "I" - like Castaneda: 'I' is not replaceable.
Time/Person-Proposition: does not make me different from the others: "J.P. yesterday at the super market" is just as true for others. - judgement context = opinion context: "The event begins now" is true at 12:00 - does not help. - True/False: does not help: that mountain A is higher than B, may be true, but does not lead to the right path. - There is nothing what all have in common. - Solution: lost wanderers in the same opinion state (individuated by index words), but not of the same opinion.
