A Critique of Representationalism
2014, 310 S, Gb, (Gruyter)
The word belief is widely assumed to designate a special class of mental states, the attitude of representing something as being the case. This book provides a critique of representationalism by focusing on the role that psychological concepts play in language, the way in which they are used in practice. Offering an alternative conception of their meaning, it finds a new way to deal with Moore's paradox.
