I have searched a lot about "as much as", so I knew what it basic means. But this sentence is hard to understand for me.
To summarize, then, I suggest that we take Frege's ascription of a sense to a Proper Name to mean that not only must one think of an object-the referent of the term-in order to understand a sentence containing it, but also anyone who is to understand the sentence must think of the referent in the same particular way. It is therefore, for Frege, as much a public and objective property of a term that it imposes this requirement, as that it has such and such an object as its referent. Evans, G. 1982: The Varieties of Reference. Oxford: Oxford University Press,p.17.
My question is what is the bold sentence mean? Is it mean that the amount of a terms' property is equal to the amount of object? I can't understand, and I am aprreciated for any help.
