Main Title: The name of things
Translated Title: Der Name der Dinge
Author(s): Gil, Thomas
Type: Report
Language Code: en
Abstract: Things have names because people refer to them using words to name them. Otherwise, they would exist, but they wouldn´t have names. When human beings speak, they interact with other human beings, expressing their own intentions and plans, understanding the intentions and desires of other people, and referring to relevant aspects of a collectively shared world.
Sprechend nehmen wir Bezug auf die Welt und auf das, was sie ausmacht, nämlich: auf existierende Einzeldinge und auf Dinge, die geschehen, d. h. auf Ereignisse. Nur deswegen haben Einzeldinge und Ereignisse Namen.
