A course of values is determined by the value that the concept has for each of its arguments. Thus, the course of values for the concept __ is a dog records that its value for the argument Zermela is the True and for Socrates is the False, and so on. If two concepts have the same values for every argument, then their courses of values are the same. Thus, courses of values are extensional.

Etymology

From Middle English winge, wenge, from Old Norse vængr (wing), from Proto-Germanic *wēinga, *wēingan-. Cognate with Danish vinge (wing), Swedish vinge (wing), Icelandic vængur (wing), West Frisian wjuk (wing), from *h₂weh₁- (to blow), thus related to wind. Replaced native Middle English fither (from Old English fiþre, from Proto-Germanic *fiþriją), which merged with fether (from Old English feþer, from Proto-Germanic *feþrō). More at feather.
