He skirts the issue by referring only obscurely to Russell's attempts to deal with propositional attitudes: "Russell needed a new category of fact corresponding to … true propositional-attitude sentences … I will not present Russell's analysis of these sentences, and the facts corresponding to them. So smart, so timely.
