Sur le contenu et l’objet des représentations (1894) de Kazimierz Twardowski est un des textes les plus influents de la tradition autrichienne. Le manuscrit Logik (1894-1895) complète ce dernier et nous permet entre autres de reconstruire la théorie du jugement de Twardowski. Ces textes soulèvent plusieurs questions, en particulier si Twardowski acceptait les notions de propositions et d’etats de choses, et si sa théorie est acceptable. Cet article presente la théorie de Twardowski, montre qu’il acceptait les états de choses, qu’il avait une notion de proposition et qu’il s’agit d’une theorie intéressante et raffinée.Twardowski’s On the Content and Object of Presentations (1894) is one of the most influential works that Austrian philosophy has lelt to posterity. The manuscript Logik (1894-1895) supplements that work and allows us to reconstruct Twardowski’s theory of judgement. These texts raise several issues, in particular whether Twardowski accepts propositions and states of affairs in his theory of judgement and whether his theory is acceptable. This article presents Twardowski’s theory, shows that he accepts states of affairs, that he has a notion of proposition, and that his theory is interesting and sophisticated
