Liberal Thinking

Australasian Journal of Philosophy 91 (3):515-533 (2013)
Abstract
When you think about a particular object, what makes your thought about that object? Roderick Chisholm, Ernest Sosa and Michael McKinsey have defended ?latitudinarian?, ?descriptivist?, or what I call ?liberal? answers to that question. In this paper I carefully consider the motivation for these liberal views and show how it extends in unanticipated ways to motivate views that are considerably more liberal.
