Propositions Schwarz I 207 (Note)
Definition Diagonalization/Stalnaker/Lewis/Schwarz: the primary truth conditions are obtained by diagonalization, that is, the world parameter inserts the world of the respective situation (corresponding as time parameter the point of time of the situation, etc.).
Definition "diagonal proposition"/terminology/Lewis: (according to Stalnaker, 1978): primary truth conditions.
Definition horizontal proposition/Lewis: secondary truth conditions. (1980a, 38, 1994b, 296f).
Newer Terminology:
Definition A Intension/Primary Intension/1 Intension/Terminology/Schwarz: for primary truth conditions
Definition C-Intension/Secondary Intension/2 Intension/Terminology/Schwarz: for secondary truth conditions.
Definition A-Proposition/1 Proposition/C Proposition/2 Proposition/Terminology/Schwarz: corresponding. (Jackson 1998a, 2004, Lewis 2002b, Chalmers 1996b, 5665)
Definition meaning1/Terminology/Lewis/Schwarz: (1975,173): secondary truth conditions
Definition meaning2/Lewis/Schwarz: complex function of situations and worlds on truth values, "two-dimensional intension".
Schwarz: Problem: this means quite different things:
Primary truth conditions/LewisVsStalnaker: at Lewis not determined by meta-linguistic diagonalization as Stalnaker's diagonal propositions. Also not via a priori implication as in Chalmer's primary propositions.
