TWIN EARTH AND ITS HORIZONS: ON HERMENEUTICS, REFERENCE, AND SCIENTIFIC THEORY CHOICE

Authors


  • An earlier version of this paper was presented in the Faculty Colloquium Series of the Department of Philosophy at Yale University in May 2005. I am grateful for the helpful discussion that ensued and also for the more recent comments of Professor Jürgen Habermas. Finally, I would like to dedicate this essay to the memory of Richard M. Rorty, an ecumenical conversational partner of unparalleled generosity.
