Wandering Significance

Mark Wilson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

After summarizing the key ingredients within a facade, this chapter reexamines the standard cases of philosophical puzzlement that were introduced in earlier chapters employing these structural possibilities, emphasizing the factors that lead us to overlook the patch-to-patch realignments typical of facade organization. It is emphasized that the fine grain of a facade-based usage rarely represents the result of original linguistic preparation, but arises later in silent adaptation to environmental pressures.

Keywords:   facades, attributes, quasi-quantities, evolutionary shaping, natural kinds, representational shifts, sense data picture
