ABSTRACT. Quine presents the indeterminacy thesis and the inscrutability-of-reference thesis not as part of a greater reductio but as theses that he outright endorses. If we reflect carefully on the use of language, we will realize that it is not sufficiently rich as to guarantee anything like uniqueness of translation. Quine makes the observability of another's perception central to the feat of language learning.
