Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

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.

Putnam V 90f
Reference / representation / Kant/ Putnam: solution: everything relates both to sensations as well as to objects - no similarity between idea and object, only the same conditions > internalism - Kant: if "red" means "like this", then no judgment - Putnam: but if "the same as other red things at a different time", then we have a judgment (classification) - to ask whether they are then similar to each other is senseless.
