Aboutness Prior I21
"about" / Prior: believing-that, thinking-that: never goes about propositions, but rather, what propositions are about. - "about" is systematically ambiguous; what it means depends on what kind of a name or quasi-names (eg numbers) follows.
Prior I 57f
"about" / Prior: instead of propositions about propositions (identity of propos E.g. "Bachelors ... "/" unmarried ... ") - better: "if someone expresses .."Bachelors...". he expresses the same propos. as "..unmarried ..." > this is not about propositions.
Prior I 155f
"about" / Unicorn: that a sentence is really about something (existent), cannot depend on the shape, because the shape is the same when the subject is fictional.
