Dynamic Relationism About Belief

EasyChair Preprint no. 9408

7 pagesDate: December 3, 2022


This essay presents a novel account of intentional identity, the phenomenon illustrated by Geach's 'Hob-Nob' sentence. 
On the account defended here, such sentences express dyadic belief facts that are not in general reducible to monadic belief facts.
We show how these non-reductive truth-conditions are predicted by a version of dynamic semantics which allows sentences to update certain kinds of accessibility relations.

Keyphrases: attitude ascriptions, dynamic semantics, intentional identity, pronominal anaphora, Relationism
