Twardowski’s conception of presentations, signs and contents played a central role in the fields of philosophy of language and ontology, not only in the School of Franz Brentano, to which he belonged, but also in the Lwow-Warsaw School, which he founded. In the following paper, the author argues that two theses on the nature of signs and presentations are fundamental for his early conception of signs and contents: the correlation thesis and the correspondence thesis. Concerning his later conception, the author argues that, while the former thesis stays relatively intact, Twardowski dismissed the latter, breaking with an important insight of Brentanian psychology.

Keywords: Content, Function, Meaning, Product, Presentation, Sign.
