Thought is not the same as content: it may be that I now believe that it is a nice day today, but tomorrow do not think that it was nice yesterday, another thought, same content - then the thought is not the informational content.
Meaning / idea / PerryVsFrege: we must sharply separate the meaning of the thoughts. - The thought is not a mental entity but corresponds to the informational content - the meaning consistent in the role of the words - the same role creates different de re-propositions in any new context._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
