Triangulation: the method of including a second point of view when considering an object, e.g. for determining a distance. In psychology, the interaction of mother and child in the study of language acquisition is observed in the face of an object. The concept of triangulation is essential for understanding the philosophical problem of private language. See also private language, rules, language acquisition.

Author Item Summary Meta data
I 12
Learning/Language Acquisition/Davidson: we now have three classes of events or items instead of two: The child finds tables similar in a relevant way. We also find tables similar, and we find each of the child's reactions to tables similar.
Form of triangulation: a line from child to table, one of us to the table, one of us to the table. The attraction is where the line from child to table intersects with the line from us to the table.
So far nothing in this picture proves that anyone has the concept of lenses.
Triangulation has not proved the concept, but it has proven the need for there to be an answer at all, which is conceptually captured by the concepts of this living being.
I 50
Both the child and the educator must see red, and he must also see that the other also sees it. (Basis for triangulation).
I 81
Triangulation/Language learning/Davidson: By triangulation I do not mean that one or the other being is endowed with the concept of objectivity. Only communication can provide this term. This requires an awareness that we share our thoughts and our world with others.
This is the reason why we cannot look at the question of the content of mental states from the standpoint of a single being.
I 116
Externalism/Language learning/DavidsonVsPutnam, DavidsonVsBurge: that with triangulation he puts the everyday situation so strongly in the foreground distinguishes him from the externalism of Putnam and Burges.

Triangulation/Davidson/Glüer: two of the sides of the triangle, consisting of causal hypotheses, are epistemologically irrelevant, i.e. even if we have to presuppose a world, nobody can invoke its causal genesis to justify his conviction.
II 171
Triangulation/Self/Davidson: the triangulation scenario makes it clear that one can have neither the idea of one's own self nor of anything else until one has the idea of other subjects and a common world. So the perspective is fundamental.
