'Attitudinal Objects. Their Ontology and Importance for Philosophy and Natural Language Semantics'. To appear in B. Ball / C. Shuringa (eds): Judgment. Act and Object. Routledge.

Abstract: This paper argues for the philosophical and semantic importance of attitudinal objects, entities such as judgments, claims, beliefs, demands, and desires, as an ontological category distinct from that of events and states and from that of propositions. The paper presents significant revisions and refinements of the notion of an attitudinal object as it was developed in my previous work.
