"It's About Time"

Abstract: Goodman's grue paradox is revisited with tools from Carnap (the total evidence requirement) and aboutness theory.  The role proposed for subject matter threatens to make confirmation relations *hyperintensional*.   How scandalized should we be by this?  Or is it something to be welcomed?
