Workshop: Talking of Something or Talking of Nothing?

David Liggins (Manchester): Unpropositional Attitudes
Let us call sentences of the form ‘X believes/says/denies/fears/… that p’ ‘attitude ascriptions’. The relational analysis of attitude ascriptions says they should be interpreted as claims concerning relations to propositions. The most familiar arguments for the existence of propositions rest on the relational analysis. I begin by reporting the usual argument for the relational analysis. Then I provide a new analysis of attitude ascriptions, and explain where the usual argument for the relational analysis goes wrong.
