Meaning (to mean) de re/Chisholm: of the greatest spy... problem: maybe there is none - two meanings: A) there is a thing, and the one who means identifies it as that to which he ascribes a property (broad conception) - B) The one who means identifies a particular thing as that of which he means something (narrow conception, still descriptive dependent).

II 128
