Substitutional Quantification I 206
Substitutional quantification/SQ/Attribution/Belief/Schiffer: we do not ascribe religious properties, but sentences (true or false).
---
I 288
Substitutional quantification/SQ/Schiffer: problem: sentences that we accept as true, although we would say that the corresponding open sentence has no true substitution instance. - E.g. there are properties, nobody will ever think of - E.g. there are truths that we cannot detect. - Solution/Schiffer: neither referential quantification, nor substitution quantification - It is simply an extension of our everyday language. - Why should it take into account the subtleties of quantification? - (> substitution quantification in the attenuated sense).
