|Property: what can be ascribed to an object in order to distinguish it from other objects. In philosophy, there is debate about whether properties exist or whether "bare particulars" exist. Expressions for properties are predicates. Not every predicate will refer to a property. See also quantification over properties, 2nd order logic, HOL, completeness.|

|Properties||Hintikka I 60
Name/property/relation/Wittgenstein/Hintikka: the names of properties and relations are themselves properties and relations - the number of the names must be the same as that of the objects - ((s)> not enough names ...)
Properties/object/Wittgenstein/Hintikka: the properties, without which an object could not exist, may not be attributed in a description of the object - ((s) elsewhere/other author: one must be able to abstract from properties.)
Properties/WittgensteinVsPlaton: Looks for constituents of a mixture, such as if the properties would be constituents of things.
Properties/Notation/Wittgenstein: one could e.g. characterize all objects in the room on how far they differ from a chair - this is not a statement about the objects, but about the grammar - ((s)> Chisholm: "to live opposite from Schmidt": no property.
