Abstract

Marcus’s view of belief is applied to the debate that centers on the question, “Are delusions beliefs?” Two consequences of this are that i) the question, “Are delusions beliefs?” needs rephrasing and ii) the answer is, “No, some delusional patients do not believe what they prima facie seem to believe”.

La concepción de Marcus sobre las creencias se aplica al debate centrado en la cuestión: “¿Son creencias los delirios?” Dos consecuencias que se siguen de ello son: i) que la cuestión “¿Son creencias los delirios?” necesita reformularse, y ii) que la respuesta es: “No, algunos pacientes que sufren delirios no creen lo que, prima facie, parecen creer”.
