|Context/Context Dependence||Nozick II 220
Mental terms/context/Wittgenstein/philosophical examinations/Nozick: the application of mental concepts depends on what else is true, for example, in the case of understanding or reading - behavior does not imply (entails) the presence of a particular mental state. There could be another (wider) context which shows that the person was not in the nearby state. - Similarly the feeling of understanding produces no understanding, if it is not embedded into a wider context.
Context principle: Only the sentence has sense, only in the context of the sentence a name has a meaning.
Meaning/Wittgenstein: if one has given the term "an x in the infinite development" in a context a meaning, so one has not necessarily given it a meaning in all contexts.
