Description It is already known that David Miller's critique of Pavel Tichý's counting of truhlikeness for its linguistic dependence affects many frameworks (cf., e.g., Oddie 1986). I review the debate between Miller (1976 and passim) and Tichý (1976, 1978, Oddie 1986, my papers). I focus mainly on the fact that it is inevitable to discriminate between primary and derivative concepts. If such distinction is made, one gets not only a solution of the puzzle raised by Miller: one offers also a more adequate picture of scientific languages in general.
