Phenomenalism I 422
Phenomenalism/Brandom: Slogan: "Being means to be perceived" - The represented is explained in concepts of the representing and not vice versa - Object and proposition are structures or constructions of perceptions - existence, independence and propositions are characteristics of assignment.
I 423
Facts about having propositional supervene facts about the appearance - i.e. first the observation must be explained. Without reference on what it means to be a thing, it needs to be explained what it means to be regarded as a thing - then you can say that there is no fact about which things are red - VsPhenomenalism: has notoriously failed - Cartesian dualism appearance as a basis certainty "that it seems to me".
