manifestness

“A fact is manifest to an individual at a given time if and only if he is capable at that time of representing it mentally and accepting its representation as true or probably true”

According to Sperber and Wilson, a fact or assumption is MANIFEST if it is perceptable or inferrable. I.e., not only what he is aware of but what s/he is capable of becoming aware of.
