Internal/external II 207
Internal/External/Carnap: internal: within a frame: E.g. a unicorn is a mythical creature - external: E.g. existence of numbers or physical things.
Stroud I 183
External/Internal/Carnap/Quine/Stroud: Quine: distinction between "Categories Questions" and "Subset Questions": external: only one type variable for all things - then the question "is there such and such?" covers the whole range (Category) - internal: a variable for any kind of thing: Subset question, we come to generality by letting a kind of variable go over all things.
Stroud: nevertheless same syntax. - Carnap: therefore different languages.
I 184
Thing language: here questions of existence possible.
I 185
Practical Question/Carnap: here the solution consists in an action. ((s)> Dummett: Manifestation) - Important argument: Carnap: existential questions must be treated as practical matters - choice of question is a practical question (of convention). - Problem: CarnapVsMoore: The kind of choice cannot be answered internally - Thing language: is efficient, but does not show a reality in the world.
