(p.263) 9 The Shape of the Conceptual
Objectivity and the Parochial

Charles Travis (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter compares three views on the answerability of the most general shape of (human) judgements to the world of which they judge. The first of these views in found in Kant, the second in Frege and Tractarian Wittgenstein, the third in Hilary Putnam. (G. E. Moore had hints of an important step towards this third view.) The chapter argues that neither Kant's view, nor Frege's (as developed by Wittgenstein) will do. It then defends Putnam's view as the right one of how the shape of the world bears on the shape of thought.

Keywords:   Kant, Frege, Wittgenstein, Putnam, deduction, logic, conceptual structure
