Quine VII 67
Ostension/Pointing/Quine: always ambiguous because of temporal vastness - our setting of the object does not show us yet which summation of current objects (stadiums or totality) is intended - problem: adding "this river" presumes the concept of river - Problem: "This" must also refer to something else, which is the same in the different cases - problem: we only know that a and b belong to the constituents - solution: learning through induction - problem: spatial expansion cannot be separated from temporal, because we need time when pointing - Pointing becomes superfluous in the course of science - which leads to the question of how much depends on the language.

Ostension/Direct/{Pointing/Quine: Problem: 1) how much of the environment counts? -" 2) how may an absent thing differ from the one that is shown to still fall under the stated term -" shifted ostension: E.g. pointing to the fuel gauge -" E.g. pointing to grass to explain green -" E.g. to an inscription to explain a letter -" shifted twice: Gödel number for an expression (1) inscription of formula 2) Goedel number as a proxy for it).
