II 64
Analytical/Chisholm: early: ..a preposition is analytical for which there is a conjunctive property such that it and the S property include one another (inclusion) and the P property is one of its sub-properties - late: different property relations: implicy and involve - (Involve: that which contains one also contains the other)
II 66f
Analytical/Language/Meaning Postulates/ChisholmVsCarnap: Problem: different intensional structure: Ex squares have the conjunctive property of being rectangular and equilateral, or conjunctive property of being rectangular and have mutually perpendicular diagonals - same extension, different meaning, hence different properties - II 67 Carnap: the property expressions are L equivalent because of the rules of language (meaning postulates) - ChisholmVsCarnap: for him it is not about the intensional structure, but about the structure of properties themselves
