De Dicto/Brandom: E.g. "he believes this from this tree bark ..." - de re: "he believes of quinine..."- quinine has more inferential connections to other contents - E.g. de re: the student believes of the number 17,163 that it... - (but he does not even know the number).
Belief/Brandom: any belief, be it strong or weak, can be attributed de re or de dicto.
De Re/Brandom: with this, determinations are made - de dicto: attributions are made.
