|Principle of Charity||I 57
Principle of Charity/Wilson: E.g. someone who is erroneously using a name wrong, still refers to the one, he really meant. - PutnamVsWilson: the principle should only apply to real situations - also beliefs should be distinguished by relevance.
Phenomena have priority during the reference - that means, if there were Bohr electrons in the other half of the universe, Bohr would nevertheless refer to our electrons. - Contribution of the environment: it follows that XYZ (on twin earth) just looks like water, but it is not water.
