Intensions: intensions are reference objects resulting from a linguistic description, in contrast to the material objects (extensions) that may differ therefrom, whether due to inaccuracies, or by the use of indexical expressions. Examples of intensions are “the oldest person in the room”, “the winner”, “John's favorite quote”, “the one who violates the speed limit”. See also morning star/evening star, extensionality, extension.

Holz I 78
Intension/Extension/Leibniz/Holz: the necessity of the totality of the world is not the modal aspect of the extensionality (or statement form, according to which a predicate is assigned to a subject), but the intensional necessity or materiality according to which the predicate is inherent in the subject.
