When do two sentences say the same thing, that is, express the same content? We defend two-component (2C) semantics, the view that propositional contents comprise at least two irreducibly distinct constituents: (1) truth conditions, and (2) subject matter. We contrast 2C with one-component (1C) semantics: the view that either truth conditions are reducible to subject matter, or vice versa. We discuss prominent IC-theories and argue for the superiority of 2C.
