Kroon believes that causal relation alone does not determine the referent of a name because causation involves a kind of under-determination to escape of which, Kroon embed a cognitive dimension, which he calls epistemic warrant, in reference-determination. Davidson brings similar words in his triangulation thesis in order to determine the content of a perceptual belief. He argues that, in addition to causal relation, one takes benefit of linguistic communications with others in order to determine the content of his perceptual belief which is the cause of that belief. In this paper, having brought the theses of Kroon and Davidson respectively, I enumerate a number of similarities between Kroon’s epistemic warrant and Davidson’s linguistic communications.
