 Substitution - Philosophy Dictionary of Arguments
Substitution, philosophy: here we are concerned with replacing verbal elements or logical symbols within expressions or logical formulas by other linguistic elements or logical symbols that are able to form a meaningful statement at the same syntactic position. If the truth value (true or false) of the statement is preserved, one speaks of the substitutability of a term by another term in a certain context. See also equality, insertion, meaning, identity, co-reference.

Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.
