This volume, the fourth in Elsevier's new CRiSPI series, is a collection of nine papers dealing with the topic of reporting on beliefs and other attitudes, and in particular with the issue of the semantics-pragmatics boundary dispute which is the core topic of the current research in the field. Written by highly-regarded philosophers of language and linguists working on theoretical semantics and pragmatics, it brings together works in the mainstream tradition of logical form and the contextualism–anticontextualism debate and the research on the role of intentions, conventions, goals, plans and cultural stereotypes in attitude ascriptions. The editor's introductory chapter gives a valuable overview of the work, discussing the importance of all these aspects of propositional attitude research and stressing their compatibility and interdependence.

Nine papers in which philosophers of language and linguists working on theoretical semantics and pragmatics examine reporting on beliefs and other attitudes, and in particular the issue of the semantic-pragmatics boundary dispute that is the core topic in the field's current research. Their topics include propositional attitudes in direct-reference semantics, alternative response besides sense and reference to the problem of opacity, whether we know what Galileo said, whether belief reports report beliefs, the default-based context-dependence of belief reports, and the background of propositional attitudes and reports thereof.
