Stepping Outside the Original DTM

  • Paweł Grabarczyk
Chapter
Part of the Synthese Library book series (SYLI, volume 409)

Abstract

In this chapter, I leave the historical perspective behind and start to develop the new version of the DTM (which I call simply the nDTM). The chapter starts by revisiting some of the unsolved problems discussed in Chap. 3, such as Alfred Tarski’s challenge and the criteria for choosing meaning directives. Next, we revisit the problem we left in Chap. 4, that is the question of how indeterminacy of translation affects the DTM. The chapter wraps up with the presentation of the new version of meaning directives.
