|Reference, philosophy: reference means a) the relation between an expression and one or more objects, thus the reference or b) the object (reference object) itself. Terminological confusion arises easily because the author, to whom this term ultimately goes back - G. Frege - spoke of meaning (in the sense of "pointing at something"). Reference is therefore often referred to as Fregean meaning in contrast to the Fregean sense, which describes what we call meaning today. See also meaning, sense, intension, extension.|

Reference/Prosentential Theory/Camp, Grover, Belnap/CGB/Grover: a pronoun should not need to refer to a proposition - otherwise we will have a >relation theory (i.e. a proposition as an object of belief, CGBVs). E.g. somebody utters: "..." - the other responds: "that is what you believe!": Solution: prosentential anaphora: "this is wrong".((s) Here "this" is no pronoun)._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
