Def "sense" (meaning) of the sentence its truth condition.
Meaning: what the sign.signifies - e.g. the planet Venus, the extension. That which one wants to talk about.
Sense: the way of presentation. e.g. the meaning of "the Intersection of b and c" is other than "a and b" (even though the point is identical)
Significance is illuminated only one-sidedly by the sense.
Example “The celestial body that is farthest away from the Earth” – there is no doubt that these words have a meaning - but it is uncertain if there is an object satisfiying it.
The "meaning" of a name is never concept (predicate) - but always a subject
meaning / sense / Frege: m. and s. are not the same - the meaning of a word or name is a real object - sense: is not based on a person like an idea – e.g. there is a sense of "par excellence"._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
