Synopsis:
  • Critique of Descartes
  • Verbal behaviorism: thoughts are to the linguistic acts of linguistic agents what molecules are to the behavior of gases
  • We can perceive something as something only after we have formed a concept of that something
  • The "aboutness" of sensations (e.g., " red ) is not the same intentional "aboutness" of thoughts
