Self- Ascription I 128
Belief about oneself / Geach: must be analyzed as a complex predicate. E.g. "Phillips thinks of Philip to be worst enemy of Philip.." is only unambiguous if "he himself" is inserted - truth here is not depending on empiricism but on meanings - "he himself" can not be expressed in schemes such as "p> q" - "taking himself for being dead": is formally not true, because of the meanings of the subexpressions.
