Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Screenshot Tabelle Begriffe

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.

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.

Hallucination/Deception: brains in the vat have exactly the same intentional content.

Intentional Content/Pierre Example/Searle: intentional content is sufficient, and that is different in "London is ugly" and "Londres est jolie" -Kripke: intentional content is not rigid, because descriptions are not rigid either - Names: neither equivalent to descriptions nor to intentional contents.
