Title: Attitude Problems
Subtitle: An Essay On Linguistic Intensionality
Written By: Graeme Forbes
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199274949
Description:

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'. Forbes offers a theory of how such verbs work that draws on
ideas from natural language semantics, philosophy of language, and aesthetics.
