Functions and Meaning

  • Louis O. Kattsoff


In the preceding chapter I have treated words of a certain sort as names of particuler and universal events. But both words and sentences are not only names but bearers of meanings. An event as an unique, simple and undiluted event which can only be indicated cannot, in a sense, be known at all. If all we could do was to recognize the events named, we could not have knowledge of them nor of their structure but only acquaintance with them.
