  Object
The object of an act is that which the agent chooses to do, that is, the specific behavior that one chooses to engage, not simply as a means but also as a directly intended end.
It is important to notice that the object is comprised of two elements: the performance of some behavior and the choice or proximate intention of some end that a particular behavior serves.
This understanding of the relationship between the object of an action and that action's moral character or species is the theoretical basis for the concept of intrinsic evil.

 Object (Java 2 Platform SE v1.4.2)
By convention, the object returned by this method should be independent of this object (which is being cloned).
Typically, this means copying any mutable objects that comprise the internal "deep structure" of the object being cloned and replacing the references to these objects with references to the copies.
Otherwise, this method creates a new instance of the class of this object and initializes all its fields with exactly the contents of the corresponding fields of this object, as if by assignment; the contents of the fields are not themselves cloned.

 Object
In this remark, a certain extremely general, topic-neutral use of ‘object’ is singled out, a use in which the expression is treated as equivalent to (equally neutral) uses of ‘term’, ‘entity’, ‘unit’, ‘individual’, and ‘thing’.
Wherever the word ‘object’ (‘thing’, ‘entity’, etc.) is rightly used, it is expressed in logical symbolism by the variable name.
The fundamental spirit of the object-thesis involves affirming simply that our talk is indeed talk exclusively of objects—that we may speak of objects in the plural as well as in the singular, and that plural talk of objects is talk of the very same category of things as is talk of objects in the singular.
