The paper explains the deep significance of this thesis for the framework of two-dimensional semantics, indeed for any framework trying to adequately relate semantics and epistemology (which is here construed as what I call the Congruence Principle). I give three arguments for this thesis, two preliminary indecisive ones by way of examples, and third theoretical one alluding to a deep principle of philosophical psychology (which I call the Invariance Principle). This paper is an improved and up-dated version of my paper No. 25. It will appear in Causation, Coherence, and Concepts. A Collection of Essays of mine.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>The Intentional versus the Propositional Structure of Contents</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-23T13:46:18Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
