Lewis V 246
Definiton Event/Richard Montague/Lewis: (Montague 1969): certain properties of time - "Lewis: that means it is identified with the property to be a time when it happens - LewisVsMontague: 1.in the RT it is not always clear, what time is.
2.with Montague we first have to find the place with it the region is already given - event/Quine: (as Lewis): can be easily identified with the region - then there cannot be two events in one region - if two in the same, it is a single event - wrong: to say e.g. that a "qua conference" the other "qua battle"(if it is the same).
