Belief, Truth, and Ways of Believing book
The notions of belief and truth frequently interact in philosophical discourse but, surprisingly, a coherent semantics for such discourse is still wanting. Indeed, a number of puzzles stand in way of a satisfactory semantic account of the notion of truth in doxastic contexts. In this chapter these puzzles are discussed and a more satisfactory semantic account is developed that combines ideas from contextualist theories of attitude reports and Awareness semantics for non-idealized belief.
