Sample text

Valores de verdad contra denotación. Una descripción, según hemos visto, puede no tener referencia. Para Russell hay sólo dos modos de conducirse frente a una eventualidad del género: “Es así como estamos obligados a proveer una denotación en los casos en los que ella está, a primera vista, ausente, o bien a abandonar la tesis según la cual la denotación es eso sobre lo cual versan las preposiciones que contienen sintagmas denotativos. La segunda orientación es la que yo sostengo”48. El primer camino es recorrido por Alexius Meinong, según quien descripciones como “el actual rey de Francia” o “el cuadrado redondo”, evidentemente sin un respectivo espacio-temporal, aún denotan auténticos objetos, si bien sólo ideales 49.

Llamaré descripción “ambigua” a un sintagma de la forma “un así y así”; llamaré descripción “definida” a un sintagma de la forma “el así y así” (en singular). Así “un hombre” es una descripción ambigua, y “el hombre de la máscara de hierro” es una descripción definida”45. La descripción definida designa a un objeto singular mediante ciertas propiedades que, sólo inherente a él, sirven para identificarlo con precisión. Pero es el aspecto connotativo de la designación el que deja siempre abierta la posibilidad de que el término singular no tenga contraparte real o caiga en la ambigüedad: no se puede excluir, en efecto, que a la propiedad descripta no corresponda ninguna cosa o que corresponda más de un objeto.

La indicación no es un componente del enunciado, excepto en el caso de los nombres propios, es decir de las palabras que no asignan una propiedad a un objeto, sino únicamente y simplemente lo denominan. Y también deseo agregar que, en este 53 54 Prisciano, Gramática, II, 5. Ibíd. 35 Paolo Virno Palabras con palabras sentido, existen sólo dos palabras que, en rigor del término, son nombres propios de particulares, esto es, “yo” y “esto”55. Según Russell, los objetos individuales son objetos simples, unidades discretas no descomponibles.
