Abstract. Bayer holds that Quine can embrace a kind of normativity in epistemology without accepting traditional epistemologist’s theories of what normativity amounts to. On Sober’s reading, Quine holds that the concept of analyticity can be defined only in terms of other equally suspect concepts, such as meaning, necessity, synonymy, proposition, and definition. Morris notes that, according to Quine’s “policy of extensionality,” nothing can matter about the meaning of a singular term other than which object it refers to. (pp. 158–162)
