Discusses Robert Brandom's and John Haugeland's proposals on how to make space for the possibility of objectivity, i.e. for the possibility of community‐wide error and ignorance. It is argued that both proposals fail. Brandom overlooks that the ’non‐perspectival‐ness’ of objects is itself a relative and perspectival matter. Haugeland's suggestion fails because his notion of incompatibility is ambiguous and individualistic.

Keywords:   anomaly, I – thou relations, meaning inferentialism, normativity, objectivity, propositional attitudes, rule‐following
