Example text

Knowledge is not a property of x. ) And yet, either knowledge is a property of x or it is a relationship between x and the world. ) knowledge is a relationship between x and the world. Let us return to the utterance in the example (e): “I know that Manhattan is an island” (x knows that e). In a common case such as this it is not possible to verify the truth of e by simply examining our knowledge. We must “go out” into the world and verify that Manhattan is actually an island (Danto 1968, 21).

E is descriptive from the moment it describes a fact, (it states that Manhattan is an island) and has to do with the world. Alongside descriptive utterances there are different types: for example, “e is true” (“it is true that Manhattan is an island”). This second utterance has to do with the world, or part of it (Manhattan), just as e is, but it is also about e: the utterance tells us that e is true or that what e says about the world is true. Utterances of this type are semantic utterances: in other words, they are utterances that deal with the relationship between the world and other utterances.

Let us return to the utterance in the example (e): “I know that Manhattan is an island” (x knows that e). In a common case such as this it is not possible to verify the truth of e by simply examining our knowledge. We must “go out” into the world and verify that Manhattan is actually an island (Danto 1968, 21). It is clear that since x is not one of the conditions of truth of e, the examination of x will not be of any use to me in determining if e is true or false. From the moment that the observation of the world allows us to determine the truth of x, Danto may maintain the following thesis: we can determine if e is true only through an examination of the conditions of truth of e.
