Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Content: content is that part of a statement, what can be represented by another statement, which differs in a respect from the original statement, e.g. it uses other expressions with the same reference. That, in which the second statement deviates belongs then to the vocabulary, to the syntax or grammar, the matching can be called content.

Multiple Statement Contents/Singular Terms/Names/Descriptions/Indicators/Perry/Newen/Schrenk: Name/Content/Perry: Thesis: the content is always the designated object - Informative Identity Sentences/Perry: it need not be possible to fully deal with the problem within the semantics. - Description/Perry: has an identifying condition as referential content that can be specified by the description. - Designatory Content: (of the description) is then the object. Semantics/Pragmatics/Perry/Newen/Schrenk: that way, even within the semantic pragmatic aspects become relevant (interpretation, use). - Perry: Thesis: there are multiple statement contents for descriptions and indicators.

Thought is not the same as content: it may be that I now believe that it is beautiful today, but tomorrow do not believe that it was nice yesterday - another thought, same content - then the thought is not the informational content.
