RE: Brain in a vat
Ah, Not too many weeks ago, maybe a couple months now I was listening to some folks discuss some of his philosophical works on the subject of language and his good ole Twin Earth analogy of saying, is it really the same thing if what we call water and what twin earth calls water has the same properties but twin earths water isn't actually H2O...
