|Satisfaction, logic: a formula is satisfied when their variables are interpreted in a way that the formula as a whole is a true statement. The interpretation is a substitution of the variables of the formula by appropriate constants (e.g. names). When the interpreted formula is true, we call it a model. See also satisfiability, models, model theory._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Satisfaction/Frege/(s): not a property of a concept, but of an object! - The object is fulfilled, the term e.g. "The concept square root of 4 is satisfied". - The first 5 words form the name of an object - something is predicated of an object.
Satisfaction/Frege: can be predicated only of certain objects. - E.g. not by names such as "Caesar". - On the other hand: satisfaction can be predicated of the name of the form "the concept F"._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
