The article is focused on the idea rejected by Davidson in his 'On the very Idea of the Conceptual Scheme'. The idea is described as dualism of conceptual scheme and content or as the third dogma of empiricism. In the article it is explained as thesis that every language stays in a relation to the world. The author claims that this interpretation is the closest to Davidson's suggestions that refutation of the dualism lets to avoid relativism and save the objective concept of truth and to his understanding of truth as logically simple - not a relation camouflaged. The presented interpretation best deals with difficulties that other do not. Davidson did not refute the third dogma, so the article gives two arguments. The first is based on the thesis that the world is not an object of any kind; the second - on the thesis that the world is not any object at all, because the word 'world' is an onomatoid.
