This chapter discusses how Ecumenical Expressivism can solve the dreaded Frege–Geach problem better than any of its Non-Ecumenical rivals. It first explains the Frege–Geach problem and considers the most promising Non-Ecumenical solutions. It then develops a solution to the Frege–Geach problem and argues for its superiority over Non-Ecumenical approaches. A separate section is devoted to the attribution of propositional attitudes. Finally, the chapter explains how the account presented here can accommodate the epistemological soundness of the inferences corresponding to valid arguments.

Keywords:   normative discourse, Ecumenical Expressivism, Non-Ecumenical solutions, Frege, Geach
