Davidson's Elimination of the Idea of the Conceptual Scheme
Languages of publication
The author presents those of the views of Davidson that are connected one way or another with epistemic objectivity and the boundaries of knowledge. He discusses Davidson's conception of 'radical interpretation' together with Davidson's theory of truth, and shows how these two conceptions underlie Davidson's specific arguments. The idea of 'triangulation' of premises is also examined in order to amplify Davidson's preconception about coordination of presuppositions. Having competed this exposition the author argues that a fundamental assumption about creation and growth of holistic knowledge is communication. Which in turn indicates that the level of objectivity and the precision of true propositions by which we are affected can be enhanced in the process of communication.
