Abstract

I review but don’t endorse Marcus’ arguments that impossible beliefs are impossible. I defend her claim that belief’s objects are, in some important sense, not the bearers of truth and falsity, discuss her dispositionalism about belief, and argue it’s a good fit with the idea that belief’s objects are Russellian states of affairs.

Reviso, pero no suscribo, los argumentos de Marcus a favor de que las creencias imposibles son imposibles.
Defiendo su tesis de que los objetos de las creencias no son, en algún sentido importante, los soportes
de la verdad y la falsedad; discuto su disposicionalismo acerca de las creencias y argumento que encaja bien
con la idea de que los objetos de las creencias son estados de cosas russellianos.
