After all, these conditions are more inclusive than Goodman’s are, since they include many digital systems. Though they are not sufficient, they are plausibly necessary, so all pictorial systems are relatively replete, relatively sensitive, and semantically rich. Furthermore, they provide dimensions that explicate the distinctions between pictures, diagrams, and languages. These conditions therefore constitute an important part of an account of the structure of representational systems. The next chapter presents a further necessary condition—transparency—and claims that these four conditions suffice for a representational system to be pictorial.

This judgment carries others with it, regarding what other marks on paper are of the same syntactic and semantic kind, such as, for example: likeness Despite being written in a different font, the latter inscription is of the same syntactic and semantic kind as the first. Both differ syntactically from, but are semantically similar to, for example: similarity goodman´s progress 15 Imagine, however, that it is not an inscription we are looking at but a photograph of an inscription. Now the mark must be interpreted differently.

According to Goodman’s version of the condition, neither system is more replete because neither set of SRPs is a proper subset of the other. This suggests that repleteness should not require something so strong as proper inclusion of one set of SRPs in another. On the other hand, Goodman was right to insist that the systems being compared have something in common, which means that some SRPs should belong to both SA and SB . In other words, SA ∩ SB should not be empty. Finally, as noted above, full characterizations of a system’s SRPs are often very large sets.
