Kripke’s Wittgenstein I 99ff
Kripke's Wittgenstein: each finite row of examples satisfies an infinite number of possible logical rules - Kripke does not proceed from behavior, but from intention: how do you know yourself that one should say 125, if one intends to act in accordance with one's previous answers? - There's nothing mental, which determines the content - with infinite possibilities there is no conceptual content - but term independent of certain application
I 102
Kripke's Wittgenstein: dispositions/Kripke: do not help because they are also limited - why would the act that you are dispositional for be the one that should be done? - Form/KripkeVsAristoteles: same problem: how can one recognize the right "natural characteristics" (normativity problem)?
I 105f
Kripke's Wittgenstein/skeptical solution: results only in assertibility conditions, no truth conditions: thus no facts which make statements about meaning come true - Esfeld: solution: social practice, middle way between skeptical solution (nonfactualism) and direct solution: which tries to find the facts of meaning in the equipment of the world - KripkeVs: one could have addition today and yesterday quaddition:. whatever appears correctly in the moment, is correct - current dispositions have always privileged position - change not independet from conceptual content: to determine change, this must be established first
