ABSTRACT: Competent participants in exchanges of assertions recognize each other as norm-governed, rational, doxastic beings. Orthodoxy account for the core of such mutual recognition in terms of intricate systems of higher-order thoughts (Gricean communicative intentions and chains of meta-beliefs of ever-higher order). Yet if taken as an account of the psychology of the core of such mutual recognition, even its proponents are often uneasy about the cognitive burdens it places on speakers. Using Wilfrid Sellars’ theory of we-intention and their linguistic expressions as my point of departure, I develop a theory of belief as a cognitive we attitude – a cognitive attitude with an intrinsically intersubjective dimension – and of sincere assertion as expression of belief so conceived. I then argue that this theory yields an attractive and psychologically more plausible alternative to the orthodox account of the core of mutual recognition.
