|Sense||EMD II 72ff
Sense/Dummett: property of a single sentence, not full usage of language.
Dum I 122
Sense/Capture/DummettVsFrege: the thought is not presented directly to the consciousness - rather grasping the sense: set of skills.
The fact that the glasses are in the other jacket cannot be content of the consciousness.
Such examples (glasses) lead to an opposite direction according to which language is explained by thoughts that are considered to be language-independent, and not vice versa (> Evans) - Saussure s conception of language as a code will avoid such a declaration - VsFrege: sense of the word is not the same as a part of the thought. EvansVsCompositionality.
Sense/Dummett: from division of states of affairs:
1) where the statement could be misused.
2) where it could be not misused.
ad 1) Statement: false - conditional: false - atomic sentence or without truth value.
ad 2): statement: true, Conditional: true or without truth value, atomic sentence: true.
Sense/Dummett: entirely determined by one knowing when it has an designated truth value and when a non-designated - finer distinctions only needed in complex sentences with operators.
Sense/Dummett: not only through verification method, but understanding what circumstances must be realized - (Goldbach’s conjecture).
