Predicates I 544
Predicates are the sentence frame, its content is determined by the set of asymmetric SMSICs
(> Frege).
I 943
Definition predicate/Brandom: here: equivalence class of substitutionally equivalent sentences.
I 533
Predicate/Brandom: no equivalence class - it therefore selects no objects - SMSIC for predicates asymmetrical - structural similarities.
I 563/4
Predicates/Brandom: cannot be eliminated, expressively essential - e.g. "whatever is, is moving".
I 572
Predicate/Brandom: essential asymmetry - problem: the difference between e.g. "Brutus killed Caesar" and "Caesar killed Brutus" cannot yet be ascertained - therefore, one must understand the predicates (T > S) but not their role as functions or as frames.
