Inference/Brandom: premises and conclusions: are complete sentences ("free-standing") - Opposite: Conditional: antecedent and consequent: are subsentential expressions ("embedded").
I 650
Inference/Brandom: semantic significance of types - anaphora: semantic significance of tokenings - Inference: reporting use sentences - anaphora: deictic use of singular terms - conceptual structure is primarily inferential structure - the use of a demonstrative refers to an object and thus becomes a singular term - (other than "ouch") and can also play an anaphoric role. >Singular terms.
II 9
Inference/Brandom: Priority of reference. >Reference
II 35
Non-inferential/Brandom: E.g. perception of circumstances. >Circumstances
II 70
Inference/Brandom: even non-inferential reports (perception reports) must be structured inferentially (Sellars and Hegel) - otherwise not distinguishable from RDRDs (reliable differential responsive dispositions) (machines) - Parrot: does not understand his own reactions - non-inferential concept: E.g. red - but: just like one acquires concepts through the mastery of other concepts, one needs inferential concepts to arrive at non-inferential ones.
Newen I 164
Inferential Roles/Brandom/Newen/Schrenk: a) voice exit rule: actions are considered to be adequate practical conclusions E.g. "The pot is boiling over" > urges the action of taking it from the stove - b) entry rule: involves perceptions of both the environment and of one's own body conditions. This leads to perception reports.
