Idea/Singular Term/Reference/Brandom: there are thoughts that you can have without having the singular term successfully picking out an object - E.g. the female author of Sordello (in reality, Robert Browning) was too sentimental - but: object-independent thought can only be held when the singular term actually picks out an object - E.g. I think I have a cup in my hand, but it is a stone - also "this" can be understood wrong: E.g. "this thing"?.
