Sample text

If we say 'it is raining here now', we are not giving the meteorological situation for the whole of our geographical area, but are merely making a statement about a certain event, at a certain time and in a certain place. This mode of expression has a schema which we may call the schema of 'events'. The schema of 'events' is frequently used in the expression of the results of observation, measuring or experiment, especially ifthe expression has the nature of a Protokollsatz or a kind of Konstatierung: The elementary form of a Protokollsatz might be illustrated by the sentence: 'The observer (experimenter) found this, that and the other at a giveti"place and given time'.

The introduction of new terms and expressions etc. 2 The fact that so far we have been using the same set of terms fot both a scientific procedure and its result, need not be particularly disturbing provided it is always clear which is concernedin any given instance. In some cases the two are distinguished: by measuring we understand a sequence of operations, the term 'measuring' not applying to tt ~ result. PROCEDURES whereby the term 'abstraction' denotes activity, and the term 'abstractum' the result of this activity.

The naivety of questions framed in this way lies in the requirement that elements of block A be assignable to each of these statements and their component parts. To put it another way, it is required that all the components of the statements have denotation represented by objects which constitute elements of block A. This requirement conflicts, of course, with the relatively independent structure of C that we have been emphasizing. Since each of the statements that are elements of block C is composed of signs (or verbal signs, words), we may, from the point of view of the relations between blocks A and C, draw the distinction between proper signs (or categorematic words, or extralogical words, as the case may be) to which elements of block A are assignable, and improper signs (or syncategorematic, or, in Russell's terminology logical words, as the case may be) to which elements of block A are not assignable.
