Now Burge’s argument begins with the widely-held assumption that content clauses do not freely admit substitution of co-referring or co-extensive expressions without the possibility of changing the truth value of the containing sentence. Content clauses of propositional attitude ascriptions have traditionally been taken as a primary means of identifying a subject’s intentional mental states. The motivation for this assumption is that we cannot, in general, substitute co-referring or coextensive expressions within embedded content clauses so as to preserve the truth value of the containing sentence.
Davidson attempts to show that this is not the case by introducing his so-called Sunburn Argument. In this section I will argue that the Sunburn Argument does not work. As a result of the argument against the token identity thesis, Burge rejects NCC. 2 Davidson’s own brand of externalism differs in relevant ways from what has been generally called “externalism,” particularly that of Tyler Burge. It is indeed an interesting matter to see whether Davidson’s externalism is compatible with content externalism.
4 is the main section of this chapter. It contains debates between Burge and Fodor. By examining the debates I argue that there is no a priori reason why so-called “wide” contents do not or cannot play causal roles in psychological explanations of behavior, and show how they might do so by noting that wide contents are among the properties we ordinarily cite to explain our behavior. 5, presents one interesting result I elicit from both debates, one between Burge and Fodor and the other between Burge and Davidson.
