Context/Context Dependence II 247
Relativize/contextuality/context-dependent/Field: if the relativization is made explicit, the context dependence (context sensitivity, or dependency of the reference system) is lost. - ((s)> complete thought: is timeless) - E.g. a) "It would be good." - b) "It would be good according to my standards." - Disquotationally true: may then be a statement that is relativized to my standards. - But no non-relativized evaluative statement can be disquotationally true.
