2013 The Inessential Indexical
01.4 p.12 It is assumed that indexical content is needed to represent the perspective of perception
01.5 p.14 A 'teepee' argument has several mutually supporting planks to it
01.6 p.15 The basic Kaplan view is that there is truth-conditional content, and contextual character
01.7 p.16 Indexicals are just non-constant in meaning, and don't involve any special concepts
01.8 p.18 Indexicality is not significantly connected to agency
02.3 p.27 It is proposed that a huge range of linguistic items are context-sensitive
04.5 p.71 Fregeans can't agree on what 'senses' are
04.6 p.72 Fregeans say 'I' differs in reference, so it must also differ in sense

06.2 p.111 Folk Functionalism is a Ramsification of our folk psychology
06.2 p.114 We deny that action involves some special class of beliefs
07.1 p.132 Proprioception is only immune from error if you are certain that it represents the agent
07.2 p.135 Prioprioception focuses on your body parts, not on your self, or indexicality
08.1 p.143 All indexicals can be expressed non-indexically
09.3 p.160 We can acquire self-knowledge with mirrors, not just with proprioception and introspection
10 p.173 All information is objective, and purely indexical information is not much use
10 p.176 If some of our thought is tied to its context, it will be hard to communicate it
10 p.178 You don't remember your house interior just from an experienced viewpoint
10 p.180 Our beliefs and desires are not organised around ourselves, but around the world
