Abstract

In this article, Putnam’s “Twin Earth” thought experiment is considered from the point of view of methodology. An analysis of the experiment reveals assumptions that are essential for Putman, but are not explicitly expressed by him, and which require justification. This ultimately weakens the force of the whole argument.
