'Outline of an Object-Based Truthmaker Semantics for Modals and Attitude Reports'. To appear in A. Egan / P. van Elswyck / D. Kinderman (eds.): Unstructured Content. Oxford UP.

Abstract: Against the background of standard possible-worlds semantics, this paper outlines a truthmaker approach to the semantics of attitude reports and modal sentences. This approach is based on an ontology of attitudinal and modal objects, which are considered the primary bearers of conditions truthmaking or satisfaction.
