Good thing the meaning of a name isn’t the thing the name points to


Well, today I noticed that a paper I wrote for a race relations class was published in my school’s undergraduate journal, VERGE.  If you’re interested in it, you can find it here http://www.goucher.edu/x20848.xml

Unfortunately there was a mistake such that the name that appears on the PDF document isn’t mine.  Doh. Two philosophical positions come to mind to remedy the situation:

  1. epistemic fallibility
  2. later-Wittgenstein on the meaning of a name

If I couldn’t take comfort with the entertainment of those two perspectives, I don’t know what I would do!  😉
