This chapter clarifies the analysis of Schiffer's complex example presented in ‘Illogical Belief’ in response to Schiffer's repetition of his criticism. A fallacy in Schiffer's argument is exposed, invalidly inferring a triadic de re construction from a dyadic one. Lessons are drawn from a corrected version of Schiffer's argument.

Keywords:   belief, illogical, Schiffer
