Propositional content, philosophy: The propositional content of a statement is what can be called true or false when the meaning is clear. The problem is how the situation and context can be made clear in the evaluation. Truth values cannot be attributed to any expressions below the sentence level. However, they have the potential to change the truth value of the whole sentence of which they are part. The following expressions correspond in this respect to the logical "and" - although, nevertheless, because, however, nonetheless. See also propositions, propositional attitudes, god example, identity conditions, opacity, content, translation.

Propositional content/Searle/Tugendhat: Searle uses "p" not for the assertoric sentence, but for the propositional content (Tugendhat: just as I used [p]) - who uses 'p' according to Searle wants to say that the fact that p really exists. - TugendhatVsSearle: unclear what facts actually are and how to recognize them - Tugendhat instead: the question of what is an assertion may be nothing more than the question according to which rules this action is completed.
