Rational Reconstruction XII 91
Definition rational reconstruction/Carnap/Quine: construction of physicalist statements of observation, of logical and set-theoretic terms. - QuineVsCarnap: Problem: if that had been successful, there would have been many such constructions, and each would seem equally satisfactory, if it was only shown that the physicalist statements are true - rational reconstruction was to show that all other scientific concepts are superfluous. - Vs: Problem: assignment of sense qualities to space-time points does not work. - Carnap later: only reduction sentences instead of context definition.

XII 94
Vs: the rational reconstruction would have to provide whole theories instead of translated sentences or translated terms.
