ABSTRACT. Russell writes that the logical form is just the same whether you believe a false or a true proposition; judgment involves the neutral fact, not the positive or negative fact. Russell points out that if an expression has a meaning, then there must be something which it means; being is a general attribute of everything, and to mention anything is to show that it is. Sainsbury remarks that, for Russell, a proper name ("in the narrow logical sense") is a simple expression which of necessity has a referent (one must be acquainted with this referent in order to understand the name).
