Abstract
This is a contribution to a symposium on Annalisa Coliva's book _The Varieties of Self-Knowledge_. I present her notion of a "commitment" and how it is used in her treatment of Moore paradoxical assertions and thoughts (e.g., "I believe that it is raining, but it is not;" "It is raining but I do not believe that it is"). The final section notes the points of convergence between her constitutivism about self-knowledge of commitments, and the constitutivism from my book _Self-Reflection for the Opaque Mind_.
Keywords Moore's Paradox  Commitment and Propositional Attitudes  Constitutivism about Self-Knowledge  Rationality and Practical Rationality  Infallibilism and Infallibility  Normativity of Belief
