Normativism and the mental: A problem of language individuation [Book Review]

Philosophical Studies 72 (1):71-88 (1993)
Abstract
My aim in this paper is two?fold. I start by contrasting three versions of externalist arguments based on etiological considerations, whose differences are not often appreciated. My purpose in doing so is to isolate one of these versions of externalism as most supportive of current anti?individualist attitudes toward the mental. My second aim is to show that this version, which I call (for reasons soon to be clear) Dialectal Etiology , is marred to a greater extent than the other two by an important problem of language individuation.ii..
