General Terms VI 213
General terms / individual concepts / singular terms / Carnap: from the point of view of the construction theory, the division into general / individual terms is not correct - any phrase can be interpreted as a general term or singular term - that is the reason that we can speak of an object corresponding to each term - individual concept: is equally a class or relation as the general concepts.
