Sample text

And if C is in fact the unique xlviii INTRODUCTION referent of that phrase, then A has a relational belief of C - however misleading it might be for me to report it as such, except under special circumstances. Clearly this view of relational belief is not in conflict with any view of de re belief where the latter is construed solely as an analysis of the structure of certain mental states. If (24) and (25) or any other formulas suggested here are taken, as they have been, as analyses of aspects of the logic of belief sentences, then there may seem initially to be a conflict.

We have moved the description into the scope of believe. Given the very sketchy account above of truth conditions for this word, we may expect any individual satisfying (17a) and (17b ') to possess the desired properties in Ralph's belief worlds. In the story, Ortcutt possessed those properties in the real world, too, but there is nothing in the above expressions to guarantee that. We are concerned about the problem of identifying individuals under different circumstances so it might be advisable to represent the situation as faithfully as we can.

At any rate some perception. This is not just a part of Ralph's beliefs, but a real thing, with a certain degree of ' thisness', of continuity. And if there turned out to be no real 'man in the brown hat' then Ralph's belief is still about a perceptually identified and hence real object - albeit one individuated in Ralph's beliefs in a way that is somehow inappropriate to this individual. In order to have the freedom to identify different (and in a sense incompatible) individuals, a version of contingent identity is employed, the domain for each world being separately defined.
