This chapter introduces the cogitative sense of thought, comparing and contrasting it with belief. It distinguishes thoughts from sentences, identifies propositions with one type of thought, and establishes that thoughts have constituents including sub-propositional constituents. Thoughts are cognitively and motivationally neutral, abstract, generatively constructed representations with truth values and sentence-like constituent structures.
