Perler I 362
Thoughts/beliefs/animal/Sterelny: Mind readers, according to an argumentation line, master something like an everyday psychology.
Heyes adapts this: a living being with a theory of the mind believes that mental states play a causal role in the generation of behavior.
Concept/Sterelny: when one binds the possession of concepts to the inferential connections between them, one gets to this point of view: the "inferential roles theory of meaning".

I 363
...I have a "little knowledge of tigers".
To have a concept of belief is to have a belief theory in this theory.
Concept/SterelnyVs: it is not compulsory to make concepts dependent on internal relationships,
they can also be identified by their relationships with the outside world.
