Two points emerged from the discussion:

1) the anaphoric argument against Lasershon's contextual/relativist proposal is problematic to the same extent for the pure contextualist - hence Cappelen and Hawthorne's objection cuts the grounds also to their proposal for taste predicates;

2) Cappelen and Hawthorne's argument against MacFarlane's no-disagreement thesis in the modal case shows at the best it is possible to disagree with oneself (or one's counterpart). This conclusion is quite different from the thesis that I disagree with my counterpart (or with myself) - i.e. with the thesis that the relation of disagreement is instantiated in such a case.

3) Richard's condition of appropriateness of evaluating someone's belief with respect to his own standards is not intended to work for the taste predicates but only for cases such as "rich" - cases where it is, according to Richard, legitimate to assess our standards as better than other standards. Several questions arises: it is puzzling that in the paradigmatic subjective cases relativism is not operative; secondly, what is to assess a standard as better than another? Is it an absolute matter? Cfr. Moruzzi & Coliva "Lost in Disagreement".
