Scope note

  • This concept classifies mental contents produced by human activity, representing data of physical, logical or psychological realities or even fiction. These objects, though expressed by the use of symbols, do not depend on them, a fact that allows their transcription to another set of symbols. However a propositional object sometimes cannot be differentiated distinctively from the used symbols (e.g. a poem).


  • Narrower term examples: “information objects”, “structural parts of information objects”
