Game/Profit/Tugendhat: important because it is about the motivation to take over one or the other side in the game - mixing of assertion and responsibility
I 279
Assertion/Object/Truth//Tugendhat: what is characteristic about the assertoric speech is that it is based on truth and therefore it is object-based - we can call these objects "facts" or "thoughts" or "propositions" - unlike Frege : not truth as an object
