Aboutness, being about philosophy: The context in which this expression occurs is the reference to a linguistic expression on something beyond its linguistic level. The being-about-something makes a decisive step that distinguishes objects from everything else. Objects cannot be about something. In this sense, also individual words are to be understood as objects. In a wider sense, actions can also be about something. See also intentionality, intentions, reference, self-reference, levels, description levels, pointing, circularity, subsententials.

Object/Activity /about/represent/stand for/singular term/predicate/StrawsonVsGeach: "about" can not be used to distinguish between singular term and predicate - E.g. Raleigh smokes can be regarded as a sentence on smoking. - Also "stands for" specifies no singular term - Both singular term and predicate term can stand for something. - VsGeach: Geach is forced to say that "smoking" stands for something because for him predicative expressions stand for properties.
