Redundancy Theory I 234
AustinVsRedundancy Theory: the statement that A refers to the world outside - i.e. something outside this statement itself - the statement that the statement is true refers to the world including the statement that A refers to the world. - That only makes sense if the statement has already been made and verified. - The relationship between the st.that A refers to the world and the world whose existence claimed by the statement that A refers to the world is true, is purely conventional. - A statement that says of itself that it is true is just as absurd as the one that says that it was wrong.
