  • Product Description

This work addresses issues regarding propositional attitudes, with an overarching theme of how the speaker''s choice of perspective (between his own and the reported agent''s) manifests itself in attitude reports. I take up four dimensions of perspective: (i) analytic, (ii) logophoric, (iii) deictic, and (iv) empathic, and discuss proper semantic treatments of them. The analytic perspective concerns the de re and de dicto modes of attitude reports. The logophoric perspective concerns the opposition between de se and non-de se reports. The deictic and empathic perspectives concern the choice of the reference point(s) for deictic predicates and the determination of the empathy relation. Towards the end, I also discuss factors that affect the possible or favored choice of perspective, including (i) the interaction among the subtypes of perspective and (ii) the implicational hierarchy of attitude predicates.
