Just how do those demands on the objectivity of judgement set out by Frege limit the authority of the parochial in shaping thought? This chapter discusses those demands, and compares John McDowell and Noam Chomsky in their respective ways of assigning the parochial a substantive role in shaping, or identifying, some realm of fact, where, at the least, that realm cannot be brought into view at all without the work of the parochial. It defends McDowell, and, with him, Wittgenstein, from charges of idealism which have been directed against them.
