Coherence Theory II 126
Def idealism: truth does not match with the inner nature of an object, but coherence.

Ayer: by the "linguistic turn" he was given the possibility to present, as a logical positivist, a version of coherence theory of truth that was freed from metaphysics.
II 130
McDowell:
Coherence Theory / Rorty per Davidson: beliefs: can a) be seen from the outside view of the field researcher, causal interactions with the environment - b) from the inside, from the perspective of the natives, as rules of action.
The internal perspective is normative, in the space of reasons.
RortyVsPutnam: he somehow tries to think that together.
