    A. Le principe de l’identité des indiscernables me semble de toute évidence vrai. Et je ne vois pas comment nous pourrions définir l’identité ou établir la connexion entre les mathématiques et la logique si nous ne l’utilisons pas. B. Quant à moi, il me semble de toute évidence faux. Tes difficultés de logicien mathématicien sont hors de propos. Si le principe est faux, tu n’as pas le droit de l’utiliser. A. Tu ne fais que dire qu’il est faux — et (...)

    To be able to produce and understand metaphorical statements is nothing much to boast about: these familiar skills, which children seem to acquire as they learn to talk, are perhaps no more remarkable than our ability to tell and to understand jokes. How odd then that it remains difficult to explain what we do in grasping metaphorical statements. In a provocative paper, "What Metaphors Mean,"1 Donald Davidson has recently charged many students of metaphor, ancient and modern, with having committed a (...)

  10. Max Black (1985). Making Intelligent Choices. Dialectica 39 (1):19-34.
    SummaryA critical outline, primarily for non‐professionals, of some leading ideas and normative implications of “Bayesian Decision Theory”.Violations of the postulated transitivity of the chooser's preference relation are not necessarily symptoms of irrationality. Indeed, the overall normative constraint of “consistency” is too restrictive a guide for many real‐life choices. Rational choice might perhaps be more usefully conceived as an informal art, rather than as the pursuit, in Bayesian style, of maximal expected utility.RésuméUne description critique, destinée avant tout aux non‐professionnels, de quelques (...)

  13. Max Black (1982). Verificationism Revisited. Grazer Philosophische Studien 16:35-47.
    The original version of the Principle of Verifiabüity (PV), formulated as "The meaning of a proposition is the method of its verification" (Schlick, quoting Wittgenstein), can be criticised as ungrammatical. Schlick's claim that it was a "truism" reflecting commonsense and scientific practice is refuted by PV's paradoxical consequences. Its users faüed to distinguish between operational and situational readings, the latter of which invokes a mythology of comparison with "facts". Wittgenstein rightly described PV as a "rule of thumb" of limited usefulness.

    SummaryWittgenstein's uses of “language‐game” oscillate between references to simplified and imaginary models of rule‐governed observable interaction, and reference to ways in which words are actually used.Reasons are offered for rejecting Wittgenstein's claim for the autonomy of language‐games: use of “mini‐languages “presupposes use of a full language; and mastery of conceptually related language‐games.“Language‐games” are not games. They might be treated as “images” in the literary critic's sense of “pictures made out of words”.

    SummaryDo we need to recognize distinctive forms of reasoning about what should be done that are not reducible to deductive or inductive forms? A canonical form for such deliberative reasoning is proposed, in which the conclusion is a “praxigenic dictum” . It is argued that a deliberative argument has a kernel that can be viewed as the proposed solution to a specified problem or task. In evaluating such a solution no distinctively “practical” principles seem to be needed.

    SummaryAn elaboration and defense of the “interaction view of metaphor” introduced in the author's earlier study, “Metaphor” . Special attention is paid to the explication of the metaphors used in the earlier account.The topics discussed include: selection of the “targets” of the theory; classification of metaphors; how metaphorical statements work; relations between metaphors and similes; metaphorical thought; criteria of recognition; the “creative” aspects of metaphors; the ontological status of metaphors.Metaphors are found to be more closely connected with background models than (...)
