Frege treats properties as a kind of function, and maybe a property is its characteristic function [Frege, by Smith,P]
8. Modes of Existence / B. Properties / 10. Properties as Predicates
Frege allows either too few properties (as extensions) or too many (as predicates) [Mellor/Oliver on Frege]
It is unclear whether Frege included qualities among his abstract objects [Frege, by Hale]
