The Incidental Representation Within the Presentation, No.534

Statements of meaning and presentation alternate between pointing out particularities or remaining within a general, universal, scope of representation. The general concept of “working class” has, as its content, an overall symbol or signification which it refers to. The “members” of the working class is a generality, however, it is now referring to those within a particular group or class. When we say that ‘he’ falls within the scope of ‘working class,’ the presentation differs and a representation takes place where now the definition takes on an altered meaning; a sense from symbolic to generality to specific and, although the substance has not changed, the contents of it have. With each alteration the outer sense of the intention changes, while its inner sense remains as the subject presented but, within its contents, possesses the core of differing representations.
