Robert Brandom on Terminology - Dictionary of Arguments

I 327
RDRD/Brandom: reliable distinctive reaction disposition: basis for non-inferential (direct) authority of observations.
I 486f
Designation/Brandom: that there is a truth value at all.
I 509
Free-standing content/multi-value
I 530
Definition SMSIC/Brandom: simple material substitution-inferential definition - connects the expression "the inventor" with another one - additional information which makes the attribution of the true identity of "Franklin was an inventor, but also Postmaster General, and printer, and spoke French ..." to a single object possible - but not within propositional attitudes.
I 531
Content of an expression: is determined by the set of SMSICs (simple material substitution-inferential definitions) that link it with other expressions.
I 532
SMSIC symmetrical for singular term.
I 487
Multi-valued logic/Brandom: Definition designated: the fact that a statement has any truth value at all.
Designation indicates what truth is
designated: requires a definition on the assertion.
Definition Multi-valued: embedded content - ((s) a particular one of several possible truth values). Interpretation: assigns two types of value:
a) whether designated,
b) which multi- value.
Standard situation: it is defined which multi-values are designated.
Designation value: everything that plays a role for pragmatic significance of free-standing sentences. bottom-up: Designation > formal validity
Basic principle: the substitution never changes with the same multi-value designation.
I 488
Multi-values ​​= equivalence classes from logically derivable sentences - Designation = logical validity.
II 178
Status/Brandom: its transmission means: a particular status of the premise ensures that it is also attributed to the conclusion - this applies to definition-preserving inferences: Deduction - but not for Definition authority-preserving inferences: Induction.
