Chomsky of course means that holist, conceptual-­role linguists would have to be committed to a natural-­scientific theory of everything; their version of language would not leave a discrete research program for modern neurolinguists. 7. Brandom, TMD, 114. 8. This question of “responsibility” to the text is a tricky problem to raise since however one raises it, one can seem to be insisting on some kind of priority for de dicto interpretation, and that is not, I think, what Brandom means. This assumption would take us back to thinking of original or core meaning as locked up inside a text, instead of in the process-­like, inferential way proposed by Brandom.

The first ply is what results from a “reliable differential responsive disposition” (or RDRD).
