It will be remembered that the solipsist’s main thesis is that everything which can ordinarily be said could, in theory, be said in a language which referred only to one’s own sensations. In the last chapter we, among other things, established that sensations and images are not reducible to behavior. We can now see that the solipsist needs to have a language in which one talks only of phenomena that are non-behavioral, in the sense suggested by our investigation. In this chapter we will consider how such a language could be set up and see what difficulties may arise.
