Internalist Cases and Externalist Theory

Internalist Cases and Externalist Theory

(p.55) 3 Internalist Cases and Externalist Theory

Joseph Mendola (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Frege's Hesperus-Phosphorus case and Russell's empty names case are key cases which suggest internalism. This chapter examines standing externalist accounts of these two sorts of cases, and argues that all of them suffer from the belief-ascription, multiple-contents, and subject-matter objections. These are the same objections that afflict internalist rigidified description clusters.

Keywords:   Frege, Hesperus, Phosphorus, Russell, empty names
