I 131
Definition person/Strawson: type of entity to which can be attributed both: states of consciousness and physical properties.
I 132
"simple, pure" subject cannot be fundamental concept, because we cannot get from there to others and also not to self-attribution.
I 133
Person/Strawson: The word "I" refers to something, because I am a person among others - the concept of the person is logically primary against the concept of the individual consciousness.
I 134
Person logical primitive - not secondary to consciousness and body.
I 134
M-predicates/Strawson: predicate that can be correctly applied to purely mathematical bodies: E.g. "weighs 5 kg" "is in the living room" - P-predicates applicable to persons: E.g. "smile", "suffer pain", "go for a walk", "believe in God".
I 135
Condition: logical criterion for the application, not only observation.
I 135
Strawson: Person/I/subject: not type-ambiguous - only predicates type-ambigous - only persons are attributed both types: P-predicate and M-predicate.
