Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Search  
 
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.

Proposition/Carnap: judgment, its meaning should also contain the "real state" - then extended to sentences - Tugendhat: thus, the domain of semantics is exceeded, because the truth of the proposition in contrast to the truth of the sentence is not a semantic determination (not relative to a system of signs) but an "absolute" determination - TugendhatVsCarnap "real" state meaningless if pragmatics is excluded.
