A book devoted to predication from a philosophical point of view, which deals with the main problems on the topic: the nature of predication, the history of the notion, the role of the copula, the role of names, the ontology of propositions, the syntactic and semantic analysis of propositions, the pragmatics of saying, the connection between logic and ontology. Two rival paradigms are distinguished, the Aristotelian and the Fregean analysis of predication, and the impression is transmitted that the Fregean one has some limits and might be refined. The most promising orientations in this book are: the attention paid to ontological questions, the search for alternatives to the dominant paradigm, and, in sum, the sense that there is something special in the act of "saying".
