Dispositional belief, assent and acceptance

Abstract : I discuss Ruth Marcus' conception of blief as dispositional states related to possible states of affairs. While I agree with Marcus that this conception accounts for the necessary distinction between belief and linguistic assent. I argue that the relationship between dispositional beliefs and our assent attitudes is more complex, and should include other mental states, such as acceptances, which, although they contain voluntary elements, are further layers of dispositional doxastic attitudes
