7 A Case for Coherence? 1 that the comparison objection has often been invoked by philosophers who favor a coherence theory of truth as part of a larger effort to discredit their competition and make a persuasive prima facie case for their own view. Neurath is a case in point. In a well-known passage, he wrote: Statements are compared with statements, not with "experiences," not with a "world" not with anything else. All these meaningless duplications belong to a more or less refined metaphysics and are therefore to be rejected.

Royce (1892:361); Santayana (1923: vi, 98, 101-4, 179); Heidegger (1930: 182-3); Goodman (1960: 29), (1988:54). 4. Cf. Berkeley (1710: Section 23); Schopenhauer (1859 II: I, 5). 5. For more on Schopenhauer's use of this argument, see McDermid (2004d). 6. 2. 7. Cf. Strawson(1950). 8. Note that I am not attributing this line of argument to Strawson. 9. Cf. Moser (1989:25—6). Moser's point is not that the correspondence theory is untenable; instead, he wants to convince us to drop talk of picturing and adopt what he calls the "minimal correspondence theory," according to which p is true just in case things are as p says.

In a well-known passage, he wrote: Statements are compared with statements, not with "experiences," not with a "world" not with anything else. All these meaningless duplications belong to a more or less refined metaphysics and are therefore to be rejected. Each new statement is confronted with the totality of existing statements that have already been harmonized with each other. A statement is called correct if it can be incorporated into this totality. What cannot be incorporated is rejected as incorrect.
