Abstract

The considerations proposed below contain an attempt to restrict the notion ‘a sense’, ‘identity of sense’ and ‘difference of sense’, respectively, on the basis of notions borrowed from the theory of information. I believe this way is very simple, and I do not need a lot of time to explain the matter. But at the very beginning I would like to make a few more general remarks concerning the semantical analysis of empirical sciences.
