|Index Words||I 84/85
Index words/Supervenience/Chalmers: Reference based on index words takes place on the basis of both: physical facts and "indexical facts" about localization and conceptual use.
Reductive explanation/perspective/indexicality/problem: how do I explain that I am that particular person? And without tautologies? That the index word is true does not seem to be an objective fact about the world, but about the world as I find it, and that it needs an explanation is something I feel. (See Nagel 1986).
Yet it is no obscure fact why it is true when David Chalmers says "I am David Chalmers".
However, the failure of a reductive explanation for index words has to be distinguished from that in the case of consciousness.
