Propositions I 56
Wright: Tractatus/Wittgenstein: object and proposition are formal terms.
I 283
Proposition/individuation/Wright: in contrast to the relation between a sentence and its meaning the content of a proposition individuates this.
Proposition is individuated by the content - sentence is not individuated by content.
  A proposition could not be that proposition, unless it would be made true by this state of affairs- a state of affairs could not be that state of affairs, unless it would make this proposition true.
((s) different with the sentence: it is more dependent on the formulation)
  ((s) difference sentence/proposition: sentence (rather) bound to time and place, proposition not).
