Philosophy:On the Content and Object of Presentations
Short description: 1894 book by Kazimierz Twardowski
|Original title||Zur Lehre vom Inhalt und Gegenstand der Vorstellungen|
On the Content and Object of Presentations (German: Zur Lehre vom Inhalt und Gegenstand der Vorstellungen, "On the Doctrine of the Content and Object of Presentations") is an 1894 book by the Polish philosopher Kazimierz Twardowski, a student of the philosopher Franz Brentano.
The philosopher Reinhardt Grossmann has observed that On the Content and Object of Presentations greatly influenced the course of philosophy. The philosopher Alexius Meinong adopted Twardowski's distinction between the individual mental act, its content and its object, and his contention that there are many objects of acts that do not exist. This helped Meinong to clearly separate presentations from the objects which they intend.
