VIDAL, Javier. Judgement, Multiple Relation, and the Cognitive Theory of Propositions. Diánoia [online]. 2021, vol.66, n.87, pp.45-74.  Epub Mar 14, 2022. ISSN 0185-2450.

According to cognitive theory, propositions are types of predicative acts, and an agent performs a predication every time she judges or asserts something. Now, the prevailing version of such a theory states that judgement is a cognitive attitude toward a genuine propositional content, which means that it is seen as a dual relation between an agent and a proposition. After showing some troubles with this version, I will argue for a cognitive theory of propositions in which judgement is seen as a multiple relation between an agent and worldly entities such as objects, properties and relations.
