Once objects have been assigned to terms and properties to predicates, semantic interpretation can be considered completed, at least for the purposes of understanding what D-speakers are talking about in the most obvious sense of ‘talking about’. At best, one might require, a la Quine (see Chapter 2 in Quine 1960) and Davidson, that unless the D-sentences describing simple and obvious matters turned out largely true by the lights of the interpreter, interpretation would be stymied in the sense that no accompanying propositional attitudes could plausibly be attributed to the D-users owing to the breach in rationality that would also have to be imputed to them in order to explain their cognitive failure.

Intuitively, it seems credible that personal value refers to something more than merely a value that is related to a person. We need, that is, to analytically separate from each other cases like, for instance, the following ones: Napoleon’s hat, and a drawing made by my 5-year-old daughter. It is plausible to argue that Napoleon’s hat has some extrinsic value, and it seems plausible to argue this whether or not the hat had in Napoleon’s view any (personal or impersonal) value. Even if Napoleon never endorsed any evaluative judgment whatsoever about his hat, it might still be of value due to the fact that it was Napoleon’s well-known hat.
