Propositions and Sentences

(p.14) 2 Propositions and Sentences
Objects of Thought

A. N. Prior

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of an obvious error, namely the error that whenever we think something, what we think is a sentence. It provides an account of truth and falsehood as applied not merely to propositions, i.e., to what we believe or assert, but also as applied to particular believing and assertings. It discusses relations contained in attitude-functions and thinking about abstract objects.

Keywords:   propositions, sentences, truth, falsehood, believing, attitude-functions, abstract objects
