Identification I 395
Identification/TugendhatVsStrawson: uses identification in the narrow sense - Tugendhat: my own notion "specification" (which of all objects is meant) is superior to this concept - "picking out" (to pick put) is Strawson's expression - (assumed from Searle) - (Quine: "to specify").
I 400 ~
Identification/Identification/Tugendhat: space-time-location: this is an object - Specification: reference, stand for (another term) (in front of background of all other objects).
I 415
Identification/particular/TugendhatVsStrawson: space-time-relation not only anchored perceptively but also system of possible perception stand points - thus a system of demonstrative specification (in front of background).
I 417
Trough space-time description the perceptible object is specified as more perceptible - an essentially perceptibable cannot be the previous object who it is - Reference: is then to specify a verification situation.
I 422
Distinguishing objects only from variable usage situations of perception predicates.
I 426
Particular/Identification/TugendhatVsStrawson: "here", "now" suffice as object to make space-time locations existent - space-time-locations are the most elementary objects - but there must also be something - at least hypothetically, then the corresponding question of verification provides, for which object the singular term stands - top-down: the use of all singular terms refers to demonstrative expressions - bottom-up: if the verification situation for the applicability of the predicate is described by demonstratives.
I 436
Localization/identification/Tugendhat: only by several speakers - not zero point, but set of surrounding objects - subjective zero point may be own position.
I 462
Identification/Tugendhat: spatial and temporal relation between objects insufficient - an infinite number of space-time locations, finitely many objects - presupposing space-time system - reference to space-time-points cannot fail - talk of existence without location pointless - identification only by simultaneous reference to all other (possible) objects - therefore existence sentences are general.
