The Hidden Variable
I will discuss the alleged “language-dependency” of truthlikeness definitions in this chapter. When I introduced the differences between content and likeness definitions in the first chapter, I briefly mentioned the possible change of a truthlikeness order after extensional substitutions. Now it is time to present and examine Miller’s objection to truthlikeness definitions.1 This chapter has the following outline. After the introduction, in Section 5.2 I introduce Miller’s puzzle and describe the reactions it provoked. In Section 5.3 I will discuss the formal analysis of the translation puzzle; and in the fourth section I formulate the solution. I end the chapter with a summary and a list of results.
