Facts I 5/6
Fact / Prior: true propositions are in order - but not true propositions - but also partial sentences are facts - they are not tied to utterance - Proposition are not tied to uttering: the sun was hot before man appeared.
I 23
Fact / Strawson: facts are what statements notice - not what statements (sentences) are - they are not an object in addition to objects - facts and statements fit together, they were made to fit together - PriorVs: then "no facts without statement" (false) and "Facts are logical constructions" (also wrong because they are "in the world") - Wittgenstein: facts are the world, not in the world - Prior: harmless, they are not "in" sentences either.
