Notes to Alexius Meinong

1. The German word “Vorstellung” is rendered as “representation”, its corresponding verb “vorstellen” as “represent”. Meinong's use of “Präsentation” and “präsentieren” is translated as “presentation” and “present”. In English works on Meinong you can find as alternative translations of “Vorstellung” the expressions “idea” (sometimes in Findlay and Grossmann, for instance) and “presentation”.
