Identification II 315f
Identification/Individuation/Searle: of a perceived object: always "the (possibly reversed) spot, which causes this experience" - (self-reference) - not circular, best-case identification.
V 141
Reference/Identification/Searle: E.g. a dog only barks in the presence of his master, - E.g. signal lamp: both does not refer to anything, but can be used for identification - no identification: "the only man with 8232 hairs on his head".
V 143
Reference is always based on the facts the speaker knows about the obejects.
V 175
Meaning/Identification/Frege: proper name means object, predicate means term. - Strawson: neutral: subject identifies single term - predicate in the general term - Strawson: between single term and general term is a non-relational connection.
V V 177f
Identification/object/predicate/universal/Strawson: object: by fact about the object - predicate: not so: at the most: "the rose and the book have the same color": but that does not identify the color - Searle: that is why universals are identified by meaning and not by facts.
