Idiolect 34
Meaning/Putnam: same meaning of "Quine", even if the causal chains are quite different - (despite idiolect).
I 32ff
Idiolect/Putnam: (Kripke): use of names is also possible with completely false beliefs - Putnam pro: knowledge does not have to specify the reference in the idiolect - use of names is joint - theoretical terms: one might regard theoretical terms as proper names of variables - then false identifications can be made without destroying the reference - causal chain: it is about the event of introduction, the physical size does not have to play a significant role.
