Perler I 207
Cognition/cognitive/Millikan: a learning process, based on stimulus-response, does not produce cognition. Whether differentiated responses are learned or not, they are not thoughts- cognitions: are always internal representations - intentional purposes: based on representations (as opposed to biological purposes).
Perler I 211
Cognition/Content/Millikan: it would be inappropriate to translate the contents of the cognitions of living beings into German that cannot distinguish between indicative and imperative modes, or content without subject predicate structure, or without possibility of negation.
I 212
It should also be possible to contradict a representation "Here is now a fly": "Here is now no fly". Or "Tuesday last week, there was a fish here".
