Referential Quantification I 274
Referential Quantification/Schiffer: substituents: are not logical constants ((s) = Objects) - in 1. order logic these can only be singular terms - values ​​that the objects are in the domain of discourse - they are examined, in order to obtain the truth value of the sentences with referential quantification - substitutional Quantification: here you can have substitutional variable substituents, but no values ​​- but the substituent can have values ​​ - even in 1. order logic the expressions can be of every semantic category - ontological commitment: only has referential quantification.
I 256
Function/Referential quantification/Schiffer: functions require referential quantification instead of substitutional quantification - ((s) The values ​​of these variables must be objects, such as numbers, not linguistic entities).
