The de dicto/de re distinction has provoked a good deal of controversy in both metaphysics
and in logic. In this talk, Mendelsohn presents some of the many examples of the
distinction that have been put forward in the literature, canvasses the ways in which
the distinction has been characterized, and discusses the relation between de dicto
and de re claims. One interesting facet of the distinction that he will develop
is the connection between de re modality and singular propositions.
