Incorrigibility I 140
Certainty/Peacocke/(s): demonstrative way of givenness: guarantees that the object has properties that are determined by the perception (not that he has certain properties for sure) - in any case that these properties do not depend on other beliefs.

I 140 f
Infallibility/incorrigibility/immunity to error/perception: visual condition: E.g. "This man is bald": infallible in reference of "this man" - ((s) Not someone else who stands in front of him - stronger/(s).: definitely the man who is given perceptually - even stronger/(s): definitely the perceptual patterns - Peacocke: no identification, not of identity with something dependent, which is just not given - "There is (in this perception situation) no one, so he would be bald, but not this man." - presented by the perception at this location - it cannot be that the way of givenness refers to "this box" while this box is not the thing which is cubical - hallucination: also in this case the thought "Dummett amuses himself" is a thought about Dummett!
