Example text

Wittgenstein's skepticism was directed against the sufficiency of mental states - the belief that all that is required to be following a rule of a given kind is a mental state of a given kind, irrespective of the subject's relation to other subjects. But even if Wittgensteinian skepticism could be extended to public usage, Blackburn still has the task of drawing a realistic picture of what it means to be a 34 James Russell solitary rule-follower. Blackburn's picture is of somebody sufficiently socialized within our conceptual system that he can understand and answer the skeptical challenges addressed to him.

Hence it is not possible to obey a rule 'privately'" (PI, 202)? I will briefly mention, and try to answer, two kinds of objection to Wittgenstein's anti-private language argument. If these objections work then they must do so by removing some of the force from Wittgenstein's case that rule-following performances are not solely constituted by mental episodes. Rule-Following, Mental Models, and the Developmental View 31 Dummett5 imagines a Crusoe who has never had any contact with other human beings finding a Rubik's Cube washed up on the shore one day.

His case in support of Wittgenstein can be found in Dummett (1978). 6 For example, the animals were trained to associate symbols on a keyboard with specific kinds of food. They could request these foods by pressing keys. The tests were administered when the animals were hungry. 32 James Russell that, through good luck, he has always got the reference right in the past; but now his application has been shown up as hollow. Blackburn calls these, respectively, (1) the right-rule, (2) the bent-rule, and (3) no-rule cases.
