Revisitando a Terra Gêmea: reflexões sobre o externalismo semântico de Hilary Putnam
Keywords in Portuguese
Cientificismo
Externalismo
Funcionalismo
Putnam
Solipsismo
Abstract in Portuguese
Em 1975, no artigo The Meaning of Meaning, Putnam defende a doutrina que ficou conhecida por externalismo semântico. A ideia é a de que os significados das palavras não podem ser estabelecidos por um sujeito em isolamento (ou por uma mente pensada em isolamento). Neste trabalho, investigamos a doutrina de Putnam a partir de várias perspectivas, visando dar ao leitor elementos para compreendê-la em detalhes. Essas perspectivas envolvem a definição precisa do externalismo, o exame dos argumentos com os quais Putnam o defende e, também, a investigação de algumas consequências da doutrina para as filosofias da linguagem, da ciência e da mente.

Abstract in English
In 1975, Hilary Putnam published the article The Meaning of Meaning in which he proposed the doctrine that became known as semantic externalism. His idea was that the meaning of words cannot be established by an individual in isolation (or by mind taken in isolation). In this work, we investigate Putnams thesis from several different perspectives, aiming at giving the reader elements to understand it in detail. These perspectives include the precise definition of semantic externalism, the arguments Putnam uses to support it, and the investigation of some consequences of the doctrine for the philosophy of language, the philosophy of science, and the philosophy of mind.
