Nonfactualism ad XII 55
Nonfactualism/Not a fact/(s): no (significant) fact exists, e.g. with questions that are in principle undetermined - or whose response depends on the further illustration of the problem -> inscrutability of reference. - (> Quine).
---
ad XII 64
Nonfactualism/(s): if something is fundamentally indeterminate, there is no fact to explore. - Quine: e.g. if meaning is a property of the behavior, the inscrutability of reference cannot be in the inscrutability of a fact - because there is nothing to investigate - but it probably makes a difference whether one refers to rabbits or parts - or e.g. to formulas or Gödel numbers - because then there would be no difference between them - the reference would lose its meaning - but the difference is tangible neither through behavior nor through ostension. -> Uncertainty - formulas: have different properties than numbers.
