Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Screenshot Tabelle Begriffe

 
Propositions, philosophy: propositions are defined as the meanings of sentences, whereby a sentence is interpreted as a character string, which must still be interpreted in relation to a situation or a speaker. E.g. “I am hungry” has a different meaning from the mouth of each new speaker. On the other hand, the sentence “I am hungry” from the mouth of the speaker, who first expressed the German sentence, has the same meaning as the German sentence uttered by him. See also meaning, propositional attitudes, identity conditions, opacity, utterances, sentences.

DavidsonVs: with that, it would be so arranged that, e.g. if a Frenchman attributed the same state of consciousness to Paul as I do, the same subject would be named by us both, while the proposition in question of the Frenchman would not be the same as mine.
It should not concern us that the Frenchman and I use different words, it is similar to ounces and carats.
This "relativism", however, contains nothing that could show that the properties measured with ounces or carats are not "real".
