Meaning (to mean) I 52
Meaning/Wittgenstein: when we say or mean that something is so and so, then we do not stop with what we think, somewhere before the fact. But we believe that it is so and so.
McDowell: This can (un-wittgensteinian) be expressed as follows: there is no ontological gulf between what one can think, and what may be the case.
In the mere idea of thought no distance is implied.
