|Subject, philosophy: the subject is, in the most general sense, the originator of actions and creativity as well as bearer of ideas, beliefs, perceptions, feelings and moods. In the tradition of German idealism the subject is opposed to the object. More recently, there has been a shift in the focus of the discussion to questions of access to internal states. See also I, self, subjectivity, object, idealism, actions, action theory._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Subject/predicate/Strawson: essential feature-localizing finding: contains universal but no particular, the universal still appears as something incomplete. At this boundary the antithesis subject/predicate dissolves - paradigm of introducing a predicate: use of an universal-introducing expression - a universal is in the same manner incomplete as the particular, while it lacks the completeness.
Subject predicate/grammar/Strawson: medieval assumptions as the division into categories A, E, I, O (either there are some or none, or all are) are pretence lemmas - solution: there is the question of whether the sentences are needed to establish a true or a false claim._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
