Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Screenshot Tabelle Begriffe

Intensional objects: intensional objects are objects of thought which may or may not correspond to external objects. Properties can be attributed to these objects, which cannot be attributed in any case to external objects. For example, dreamed things and situations with physically impossible properties. A fundamental problem is that in every discussion it must be ensured that the objects which can be disputed are not only intensional. A special problem is the status of intensional objects to which the object character is denied. See also mentalism, intensions, thought objects.

Intensional objects/Quine: are no classes, but class terms or attributes (properties) - are not numbers but number names (number terms) - two open sentences which specify the same class, still determine different properties if they are not analytically equivalent - Vs: equivalence unresolved - problem: this further swells the realm of the intensional objects - problem: wrong: "Any two conditions which determine an x as the only one (unique) are analytically equivalent" - that’s not certain with intensional objects or with true but non-analytical sentences (planets).
