Language rules/QuineVs: are only factual practices (naturalistic conception).

Quine VII 32
Semantic rules/Quine: (language rules): analyticity: E.g. I do not know if "everything green is expanded" is analytical or not - purported relation between expressions and languages: A statement S is "analytical in terms of the language L" - Problem: making this useful for various statements and languages ​​- problem: Carnap’s rules contain the word "analytic" - solution: predicate "analytical in L0"? - Problem: what distinguishes it from the other predicates? - If we explain that, only for L0 and not in general.

VII 35
Language rules/Quine: a semantic rule cannot be introduced ad hoc to explain analyticity - there must be a large number of language rules in order to explain each as an element of the set - otherwise circular, because only explicable in terms of analyticity (the explanation purpose) - E.g. postulate: who can say what true statements have the rank of postulates if there is only one single postulate, and not a set, in terms of which a postulate may be an element or not - relative terms need to be explained with respect to something - not ad hoc! - If LR is a simple list of true statements, then term "LR" remains unexplained instead of the unexplained "analytical" - "language rule" is not an intrinsic property - LR should be relative to truth condition of a language - problem: there is no distinction of a subclass that would intrinsically be more an LR - Important argument: if "true regarding LR": then not truth analytical in contrast to another.

Language rules/Lauener: always need intentions, are not extensional.
