[hist-analytic] Question for Bruce on

I think we should put off discussing meaning postulates until we  
consider my exposition in chapter 3, where I discuss the concept of a  
meaning postulate.  When I discuss the color example in chapter 2, I  
say that I can't fully justify my claim that the  single color claim  
(if I can call it that) is analytic until I clarify the notion of  
analytic truth in the chapter to follow.  The clarification I offer  
makes use of Carnap's notion of a meaning postulate, which is not  
undermined by the critical observations Steve's offers.
