Ontological Relativity XII 66
Ostension/Ontological Relativity/Inscrutability/Quine: we cannot point to an absolute location or speed - as little as to a rabbit or a part ((s)> Gavagai).
---
XII 69
Ontological Relativity/Quine: the real problem is not a regress in ever wider framework theories, but the circularity of predicates e.g. "an F is a G" then this requires another predicate for the explanation of "G".
---
XII 70
Frame theory: it is useless to question its terms - for that we need more terms.
---
XII 71
Ontological Relation: double: 1st depending on the context - 2nd on translation.
---
XII 78
Ontological Relativity/Quine: is trivial in a finite area, because the quantification can be replaced by conjunction or disjunction - i.e. the variables are eliminated - then no question of the objects - the same goes for endless theories as long as each object has a name.
