§12 Continuation: the expressed objectivity
Talk of what an expression expresses has, in the discussion so far, several essentially different meanings. It relates, on the one hand, to intimation in general, and especially in that connection to sense-giving acts, at times also to sense-fulﬁlling acts (if these are present at all). In an assertion, e.g., we express our judgement (we intimate it), but we also express percepts and other sense-fulﬁlling acts which illustrate our assertion’s meaning. On the other hand, such talk relates to the ‘contents’ of such acts, and primarily to the meanings, which are often enough said to be ‘expressed’.
