I wish to argue that the problem of rule-following rests on
semantic internalism and that semantic externalism makes
the problem evaporate. Given that the rule-following problem
is a version of the general problem that the reference
of an intentional phenomenon is underdetermined by its
meaning, semantic externalism solves the problem by
reducing meaning to reference. Since both Kripke and
Wittgenstein are proponents of semantic externalism, the
problem of rule-following is not a problem for either Kripke
or Wittgenstein, but only for Wittgenstein"s internalist interlocutor.
