|Mention philosophy: the mention of linguistic objects must be distinguished from their use. This distinction is sometimes difficult when symbols are partly used and partly mentioned within logical formulas. One simple case of a mention of a word or phrase is the quote. See also object language, metalanguage, quote, reference, occurrence, type, token._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments. |
E. Tugendhat on Mention - Dictionary of Arguments
And/characters/mention/use/Tugendhat: "a and b": on the side of the characters we must not expect the expression "p and q", but the expression "that p and that q". This is an analogy, in fact. And they are also in need of completion by a predicate.
But the fact that p and the fact that q are not composed - we need a more general term which somehow contains composition, but goes beyond that.
