Propositional Attitudes/Attribution/Peacocke: Problem: instead of one set of propositional attitudes another can also be attributed. - Solution/Peacocke: Relation of Closeness/Narrowness. - E.g. someone who rearranges something on the table usually does not respond to the compass direction. - The concepts may then have different expressiveness. - Point: if it is a rotating table, the space-relative concepts can change while the table-relative ones remain constant. - ((s) The concepts do not change, but their truth values.) - More expressive: the space-relative concepts. - Problem: if they are used here, there may be an explanatory gap. -> narrow statement.
