Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Screenshot Tabelle Begriffe

 
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.

Intentionality/about/aboutness/MillikanVsTradition: Intentionality is not transparent: many processes that are "about" something in the sense that their users are not aware of them.
E.g. von Frisch knew what a bee dance is about, the bees do not know. Bees react only appropriately to bee dances.
Thought: requires that the referent is identified.
