Event/Davidson/Meixner: from the true sentence "Hans laughed aloud" follows logically "Hans laughs" but not according to predicate logic. How can we receive a predicate logical conclusion? - Solution: We must assume that there are events as entities. ((s) for the quantification): "For at least one current event applies it is noisy and a laugh from Hans". (Ditto for the two part-state of affairs loudness and laughter). > "Adverbial analysis". - Event/ontology/Meixner: however, it is not even decided whether they are objects or functions - Event/LewisVsDavidson: as properties they are functions - DavidsonVsLewis: as individuals they are objects.
