Contextualizing Points of View

This chapter provides a historical introduction to points of view at the same time that offers a key distinction between two different models for explaining them. Points of view can be explained, first, following the model of propositional attitudes. This model assumes that a subject, a set of contents, and a set of relations between the subject and that content constitute the internal structure of a point of view. If one chooses to follow the second approach though, as this monograph does, the internal structure of a point of view is not directly addressed and, therefore, points of view are directly identified by their function and solely understood as ways of accessing the world.
