Internal/external I 167ff
Truth/knowledge/Kant/Putnam: first separation of internal and external view: according to Putnam: ~ what we say about qualities of objects, applies with equal force to our sensation ("objects of the inner sense") - PutnamVsKant/Vs "noumenal world": the question of whether my feelings at different times are "really" alike (have "same noumenal property"), is useless - my sensation "red" cannot be compared directly to noumenal objects - truth/Kant: "agreement of knowledge with its object" - Putnam: this is not a correspondence theory but any judgment says, the noumenal world is as a whole in such a way that this is the description that a rational being would construct, if it has the information that a being acquires through our senses. - Putnam pro: this is truth as an ideal fit.
