Translation Holism IV 47
Translation - holism / formulas / Fodor / Lepore: if statements were formulas, the translation holism (t.h.) would be trivially wrong. - Otherwise different languages could in fact ​​contain the same formulas: E.g. English and German, both ciuld contain [Empedikli: s li: pt] - IV 48 t.h. is a condition for the expression (expressive power) of languages ​​and theories. - T.h. says that if the language L can express a statement of the English that it then can express all statements.
