Anti-Externalism has 3 components. half I examines well-known case-based arguments for externalism as a result of Kripke, Putnam, and Burge, and develops a unified internalist reaction incorporating rigidified description clusters. It argues that this proposal's simply genuine problems are shared by way of all attainable externalist remedies of either Frege's Hesperus-Phosphorus challenge and Russell's challenge of empty names, in order that those problems can't be decisive. half II seriously examines theoretical

Brod und Weltsch charakterisieren ihr Werk als eine artwork „Monographie über verschwommene Vorstellungen". Sie zeigen, dass die von der philosophischen Phänomenologie Franz Brentanos und Husserls aufgestellten Postulate der Evidenz und genauen Beschreibung nur im Bereich der Wissenschaft statthaft sind, ansonsten aber unsere Wahrnehmungswelt von einer Vielzahl von vagen, unbestimmten, verschwommenen Sinnes- und Gedächtniseindrücken bestimmt wird, die eine empirisch arbeitende Psychologie ebenso wie die philosophische Erkenntnistheorie mit einzufangen und ihren Funktionen zu explizieren habe.
