Stereotypes IV 186
Stereotype / Fodor / Lepore: meanings are no stereotypes: E.g. stereotypical brown cow can be dangerous without the st. brown or th st. cow being dangerous. - One would in turn accept absurdly analyticity of all inferences in order to guarantee that.
IV 186
Analyticity / analytical / Fodor / Lepore: if meanings are stereotypes, yet none of the individual features is defining. - E.g. the stereotypical brown cow can be dangerous, even though the stereotype dangerous is not part of the stereotype brown or the stereotype cow. - Therefore, the distinction analytic / synthetic fails. - N.B.: even if the distinction a / s is refused it shows that meanings are never stereotypes!
