Existence and Propositional Attitudes: A Fregean Analysis * Leila Haaparanta Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Philosophy University of Tampere P.O. Box FIN Tampere Finland Abstract It is a commonly held view that Frege's doctrine of senses and references is not compatible with the idea that there are de re beliefs.   This is an ambitious project but we need a lot more detailed discussion of the key moves. For example, Lyons's main objection to the idea of intrinsic intentionality, apart from amusing similes, is that the brain "cannot step outside itself so as to be in a position to make or note a relation or association between something in itself and something in the environment" . Propositional attitude statements – statements about our beliefs, desires, hopes and fears – exhibit certain logical peculiarities. For example, in apparent violation of Leibniz’s law of the indiscernibility of identicals, we cannot freely substitute expressions which designate the same object within such statements.
