Naturalism I 87
Naturalism/Millikan: Problem: naturalistic theories cannot be proved as true against Cartesian skepticism.
Correspondence/Millikan: no one doubts that sentences of world correspond, unless one gives up correspondence theory as a whole.
Image: it is less clear that correspondence has to do with mapping rules.
Problem: it is not clear how to describe the corresponding ontology.
