World/Thinking McDowell I 177
PutnamVsDavidson: when the cause-effect description is complete, then the sounds we utter, cannot be more than a mere "expression of our subjectivity".
RortyVsPutnam: Putnam understands by a "Declaration of X" still a synopsis, the synthesis of external and internal position.
Representatives of disquotation believe that people can only be described in behaviorist manner. But why should it be impossible to consider supplements by normative representations? (Putnam's philosophy was ultimately traditional).

McDowell I 177
Causality/Putnam: the desire to tell a story about the causal relationships of human pronouncements and environment, does not rule out that one invents a story, after the speakers expressing thoughts, and make assertions, and try to not make mistakes.
These stories are then eventually not distinguishable.
