Representation II R. M. Hare Philosophische Entdeckungen in Grewendorf/Meggle(Hg) Linguistik und Philosophie, Frankfurt (Athenäum) 1974/1995

Grewendorf II
Language/Representation/Hare: the analogy with the e.g. dance points to our possibility of reasoning about our language usage.
This is a corrective against an orthodox representation theory, according to which "facts", "characteristics" and other dubious entities such as unreliable diplomats oscillate between language and world. We do not need anything like that.
It's simply that people try to understand each other.

Anamnesis/Platon: anamnesis is not just remembering but rather "recalling":
Hare: we know that we have understood something correctly without being able to cite reasons. (Knowledge/saying). The only test is to repeat it.
