Individual/General/TugendhatVsTradition: seen linguistically-analytically consciousness of the individual is just as sensual as of the Generality - but consciousness of General has in the similarity a sensual preform - Reference to individual therefore more problematic.
Generality/reference/singular Term/Tugendhat: indeed a reference to all objects (of an area) is presupposed with the singular term - but that is no real relation - the variety is somehow present to the consciousness - singular terms do not have to describe perceptible objects, also not indivdual objects.
Identification/Tugendhat: spatial and temporal relation between objects insufficient - an infinite number of space-time locations, finitely many objects - presupposed: space-time system - reference to space-time locations cannot fail - talk of existence without location pointless - Identification only by simultaneous reference to all other (possible) objects - therefore existence sentences in general.
Language/Reference/Tugendhat: direct reference by ostension no language.
Also with the demonstrative "here" the reference to all other is already posited._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
