Concepts V 151f
Concept/Frege, "the concept horse is not a concept" - Searle: "concept" is used in the language in a double sense - "the concept horse" can be grammatical subject but not the predicate of a sentence - the property of being a horse is in itself no ascription of a property - property predicates do not mean the property.
Frege, "concept horse" is not a concept in itself (but an object) - self-ascription of a property is not a property.
