This chapter briefly introduces the concept of ‘indirect report’, starting with a discussion on Frege’s notion of ‘sense’ and the follow-up elaborations in this regard. The main objective of this chapter is to provide a general picture of the complexities revolving around indirect reports. To set the scene for a more elaborate coverage on the issue of indirect reporting, this chapter prepares the readers for a better understanding of philosophical, social, and cognitive issues revolving around the topic. This chapter also manifests the outline of the whole book. On this account, this chapter opens the window for a wider outlook into the book. This chapter also guides the readers to be more selective in their readings. That said, for fully grasping the brief discussions made in this chapter, the reader can refer to the next chapters to find out more elaborations and examples on relevant issues.
