Reference Putnam V 90f
Reference / representation / Kant/ Putnam: solution: everything relates both to sensations as well as to objects - no similarity between idea and object, only the same conditions > internalism - Kant: if "red" means "like this", then no judgment - Putnam: but if "the same as other red things at a different time", then we have a judgment (classification) - to ask whether they are then similar to each other is senseless.
