Frank I 492ff
Generality Constraint/Evans: the ability to think presupposes: a) a is F, b is F, etc. but also a is F, a is G, etc. - Non-fundamental notions are not connectable with all terms: e.g. this hallucinated necktie was made in Italy. - (s) Generality Constraint: regulates the basic interconnectivity of terms, empirically, not logically?
VsEvans: the generality constraint does not really show the adequacy of the terms regarding "I"-imagination. Dilemma: a) I-imagination/DescartesVsEvans: is only about bodies, b) LockeVsEvans: is only about humans, not about the person. - VsEvans: he presupposes unity instead of proving it.
