|Predicates, philosophy, logic: predicates are symbols that can stand in logical formulas for properties. In fact, not every predicate stands for a property, since it has contradictory predicates, but no contradictory properties. For example, one can think of a predicate "squaround" for "square and round", that is, two properties that exclude each other. One can then truthfully say "Nothing is squaround". There are therefore more predicates than properties. See also round square, scheme characters, quantification, 2nd level logic, predication, attributes, adjectives.|

Predicate/Husserl: meaning of the predicate. - object: the attribute! TugendhatVsHusserl: not real, the meaning of the predicate is no object, only linguistically (VsObject Theory) - instead of standing for an object: function of the predicate: characterization - unsaturated predicates, only meaningful in connection with singular term.
