Existence / GeachVsHume / GeachVsGilson: the Hume-Brentano-Gilson thesis (that existence adds nothing conceptual) cannot be recognizably claimed if true - it treats existence as nonconceptual (not conceptualized) and tangible only in existence judgments, but this statement itself is not an existence statement and treats existence a conceptual. - Contradiction.
