A little reflection will reveal that this proposal is fundamentally misguided. When an expression containing mention quotes is being used—something must be used if we are to have a complete sentence— what is spoken of are shapes or sounds. Semantic properties do not enter into it. Bearing this in mind we no longer have—in any relevant sense—an occurrence of ‘C’ on the right-hand side of the equation. So the purpose for which mention was brought in is defeated: its appeal rests on an illusion created by the notation.
Whether C2 contains other constituents beside those of C1. We thus obtain four sub-options. The two where (1) gets a ‘yes’ were already discussed and dismissed: when combined with a ‘yes’ to (2) we get a sub-option dismissed earlier because of there being ‘no backward road’ from C1 to C2, while if (2) gets a ‘no’ then clearly C1 and C2 have become one and the same. Of the two sub-options where (1) gets a ‘no’, and hence C1 is not a constituent of C2, the one where (2) gets a ‘no’ means that C2 differs from C1 in configuration only.
Discussion of the header is dispersed. The core difficulty is explored initially in section II, but then returned to for further consideration after the exposition of the symbolic round in section IV. The final section (VI) employs the proposed interpretation of the passage to shed light on the few lines of manuscript (only recently published) which record Russell’s discovery of the theory of descriptions. The acclaimed solution emerges as a direct consequence of Russell’s attempts to circumvent the difficulty exposed in the obscure passage.
