Jonathan Berg argues for the Theory of Direct Belief, which treats
having a belief about an individual as an unmediated relation
between the believer and the individual the belief is about. After
a critical review of alternative positions, Berg uses Grice's
theory of conversational implicature to provide a detailed
pragmatic account of substitution failure in belief ascriptions and
goes on to defend this view against objections, including those
based on an unwarranted "Inner Speech" Picture of Thought. The work
serves as a case study in pragmatic explanation, dealing also with
methodological issues about context-sensitivity in language and the
relation between semantics and pragmatics.
