Famous quotes containing the word call:

    There is no call for indignation or resentment at anyone whatsoever inquiring, holding,
    or propounding views concerning the divine, for it is not the authority of the disputant, but
    the truth of the disputation that is in the request.
    Marcus Minucius Felix (2nd or 3rd cen. A.D.)

    Let’s call something a rigid designator if in every possible world it designates the same object, a non-rigid or accidental designator if that is not the case. Of course we don’t require that the objects exist in all possible worlds.... When we think of a property as essential to an object we usually mean that it is true of that object in any case where it would have existed. A rigid designator of a necessary existent can be called strongly rigid.
    Saul Kripke (b. 1940)
