Ascriptions of mental states to oneself and others give rise to many interesting logical and semantic problems. Attitude Problems presents an original account of mental state ascriptions that are made using intensional transitive verbs such as 'want', 'seek', 'imagine', and 'worship'. Forbesoffers a theory of how such verbs work that draws on ideas from natural language semantics, philosophy of language, and aesthetics.
Graeme Forbes is a Professor of Philosophy at The University of Colorado in Boulder.
