|Ontological Relativity||II 205
Relativization/Relative/Absolute/Quine/Field: Ontological Relativity to a background language. - Disanalogy: Locations can only be understood by relations of objects - but that does not apply to words - no "linguistic relation" that would exclude the indeterminacy. - Real indeterminacy / Field: E.g. no fact decide which translation of Newton’s "mass" is the best. (Net mass or relativistic mass) - E.g. a) pulse = mass times velocity and - b) mass invariant (independent of the reference system) - the two are mutually exclusive. - Solution: mass, denotes partly the one and partly the other. - II 208 agreement: is not a question of empirical linguistics.
