Internalism V 103f
Similarity/deception/error/internalism/Putnam: an outsider will have a different similarity concept than we have. - Then we cannot be always wrong "in reality"! - Just because there are no external standards.
V 104f
Internalism/translation/truth/theory/Reference/Putnam: metaphysically incompatible theories (e.g. close-up effect/distance effect) can be translated into one another. - If it were only about abstract correspondence, incompatible theories could both be true. - Internalism: does not have anything against it, why not equally coherent, but incompatible conceptual schemes?
V 106
N.B.: to pick out a correspondence between two areas, one needs an independent access to both - this has not be seen for 2,000 years.
