Disjunction of facts / disjunctive fact / Chisholm: even if there were an entity that would be the disjunction of "Miller or Smith," I am not in relation to it that in that it is either sick or gone. - (> Fodor, no disjunctive law) - solution: the belief that either Miller is ill or Smith is absent, is a feature that I simply ascribe to myself - not a complex subject is required. (> self-ascription).
