Act, Content and Object (Frege, Stout, Moore and the School of Brentano)

Mário Ariel González Porta


It is well known that the discussion concerning the relations between content and object is a central theme in Brentano’s school after the decisive essay by Twardowski in 1894. However, less known is the fact that this discussion also takes place outside the aforementioned school and that the distinction between content and object is already present before 1893 amongst other authors.
