|Concept: term for an entity with certain properties. The properties of an object correspond to the features of the concept. These concept features are necessary in contrast to the properties of an individual object, which are always contingent.|

Concept: One must have many concepts in order to get an idea.
Definition concept/Frege: the concept is the semantic correlate of predicates, namely their "meaning" not their "sense". So concept defined by reference.
Concept: LL: Mere distinctive reactivity is not enough to recognize the application of concepts.
Rationalist addition: the inferential role of reaction is critical.
Concept/BrandomVsKant: should not be separated dualistically from the non-conceptual.
Concept/Conception/Kant/Brandom: B relates to A as 1) form to matter - 2) general to particular - 3) spontaneity (activity of the intellect) to receptivity - BrandomVsKant: these are orthogonal and independent - no contrast to the non-conceptual - Content of the judgment also conceptual - Brandom: ad 1: if the mind does not change its material, it is superfluous (> Hegel, Phenomenology) - ad 3) contrast between conceptual/causal order: Kant was unable to construct this as a contrast between concepts and causes.
Definiton concept/Brandom: inferential role - it is about relations between concepts (East/West) not about relations between concept and object.
Conceptual structure/Brandom/(s): by repetition (anaphora) - necessary for cognitive purposes - conceptual content: by substitution? - ((s) or, more precisely: exchange of frames?).
Inferential structure: ideally allows costruing thinking and the world as represented with an identical structure - conceptual structure of assertions: about E.
