This chapter investigates the arguments and proposals made by Quine in ‘Quantifiers and Propositional Attitudes’. Quine's proposal to distinguish two kinds of believing is criticized. It is shown using minimal assumptions that Quine's proposal to replace one sort of attribution of belief with another fails to preserve truth value, let alone content. A curious inconsistency is derived from Quine's response to Alonzo Church.

Keywords:   attitude, belief, proposition, quantifier, Quine, Alonzo Church
