Abstract

The paper aims to reflect on theoretical foundations of Horecký’s approach to the relation between language (and more specifically: terms) and thinking (concepts). Reflections are devoted to Horecký’s explicit and implicit beliefs on the nature of terms and concepts and their mutual relation, as well as their relation to reality around. Definitions of both term and concept appear in some of Horecký’s major papers. The paper focuses on models of term-concept relation proposed in those papers. Finally, an attempt is made to find some convergences and divergences in theories of Horecký and the Czech logician Pavel Tichý.
