|Individuation, philosophy: the picking out of an object by a determination by means of additional information which is not to be derived from a single statement which contains this object. For example, beliefs are individualized by content, not e.g. by the length of the character strings with which they are expressed. The contents of a belief are, in turn, not individuated by their repetition, but by other contents.|

Individuation/I/Self/Idea/I/Intention/Brentano: in the self-evident mental states presented by us, we never capture any individualizing properties.
All my properties, which I can readily grasp, are such that they can at least be theoretically immediately exemplified in different things. (BrentanoVsDescartes).
