Example text

This means that an essential move is carried out from formal to modular cognitive semantics which facilitates their continuity. From this point of view it is central that what formal semantics calls ‘extension’, ‘intension’ and ‘possible worlds’ may be retained, but should be related to certain modules. e. e. 10 (7) So as to make this move comprehensible, let us continue the introduction of the basic categories of the two-level approach that we began in (5). A triple consisting of an utterance u, its utterance meaning m, and the context ct is a ‘meaningful utterance’ mu: (i) mu = , ct, m>> What has been deªned so far belongs to the domain of ‘language’, and involves two modules, namely, the grammatical and the conceptual.

However, Quine’s writings are ambiguous with respect to the replacement of the analytic philosophy of science: in particular, he also assumes the continuity of science (in whatever sense) and philosophy (see also Haack 1993), which suggests that the latter cannot be replaced by the former completely. Thus we obtain the following two possible explications of (15b): (18) a. The analytic philosophy of science should be replaced completely by ‘science’. b. The analytic philosophy of science should not be replaced completely by ‘science’.

However, this doesn’t speak against testing the two-level approach with respect to scientiªc concept formation, too. Rather, examining one of its hidden properties by manipulating it in the course of a new application is in full accordance with the nature of thought experiments discussed brie¶y in Section 3 of the Introduction. It is exactly this kind of manipulation of the model which is expected to reveal how far its scope can be extended, that is, what some of its prospects and limits may be.
