This book deals with the problem of belief retention concerning spatio temporal particulars as well as places and days. It is centred around Frege’s famous ‘today’/ ‘yesterday’ claim which has created a lot of controversy as to whether his remarks about indexicals can be accommodated by his general sense/reference framework. The author argues that it can and that in the indexical case Frege has embraced a different sense/reference framework from the one associated with the non-indexical expressions such as definite descriptions. In line with this, a solution to the problem of cognitive dynamics concerning belief retention is extracted from Frege.
It is shown that it can help us solve the case of Rip Van Winkle who has slept for twenty years and woke up thinking he slept for only one day, which David Kaplan found insoluble.
