Propositional Content I 215
Propositional content/Brandom: from social structures that transmit it, fundamental representational contents - (s) what is considered to be correct perception is socially regulated by standards.
I 217
Auxiliary hypotheses are different from person to person.
I 218
Access: to pragmatics. Normativally - to semantics: inferentially - to the interaction between conceptual contents: social.
I 236
Propositional content/Field/Brandom: two-staged: 1) belief in Mentalese, 2) meaning in public language.
I 327
Maths propositional content: without empiricism.
I 240
Propositional content/Brandom: (the believable) shall be distinguished by the pragmatic property of assertibility.
I 254
Definition propositional content: that which is expressed by performances and which determines the specific characteristics of their significance within the genus of asserting.
I 402
Propositional content: role as premises - starts with the concept of truth instead of inference - Definition action: make something true.
I 473
Propositional content/Brandom: Thesis: cannot play a fundamental explanatory role - is parasitic to the expressive role! - it is about the act of asserting and not about what is asserted.
I 873
Content/Brandom: propositional and other conceptual contents with which the behavior of the system is to be measured, cannot be justified with this behavior itself.
I 897
Propositional content/Brandom: what we mean depends on the actual circumstances, even if we do not know what they are. This is the perspective character of propositional content - hence the externalism begins at home: The contents of external definitions depend on their actions and of the truth of that which they make an assertion about.
II 207
Propositional content/Brandom: always also representational - propositional content can be reflected on in concepts of truth or reasons - "aboutness", "about" is not necessary in addition to representation - but propositional content must be able to be characterized non-representationally.
II 263
Objectivity/Brandom: of the propositional content: the objectivity (fact) says nothing about who could reasonably assert something - and such facts would even exist without living beings - this objectivity is a characteristic that we can make understandable as a structure of the definitions and authorisations - every community that recognizes definition and authorization as a normative status can recognize propositional content that are objective in this sense.
