This theory of the signification of terms is then extended to an account of the truth-conditions of propositions and the truth-preservation of arguments, but always with the reduction to.

In the philosophy of language, the distinction between sense and reference was an innovation of the German philosopher and mathematician Gottlob Frege in (in his paper "On Sense and Reference"; German: "Über Sinn und Bedeutung"), reflecting the two ways he believed a singular term may have meaning.

Frege, “Illustrative extracts”, in: Translations from the Writings of Gottlob Frege, pAbstraction is founded on oblivion of details. Commenting on Husserl’s views on the subject he says: “Inattention is a very strong lie; it must be applied at not too great concentration, so that everything does not dissolve, and likewise not too dilute,so that it effects sufficient change.

There is some truth in these Claims, but äs differences in supposition were not only discovered through an examination of syncategorematic words, but were attributed to See especially Philotheus Boehner, "Ockham's Theory of Supposition and the Notion of Truth", Franciscan Studies 6 (), pp.

Carefully balancing Ockham's position against contemporary appropriations in the light of Fodor's LOTH, it allows us to understand better Ockham's view on human thought.
