Latitudinarianism (philosophy)

Latitudinarianism (philosophy)

Latitudinarianism, in at least one area of contemporary philosophy, is a position concerning "de dicto" and "de re" (propositional) attitudes. Latitudinarians think that "de re" attitudes are not a category distinct from "de dicto" attitudes; the former are just a special case of the latter.

The term was introduced into discussions of "de dicto" and "de re" attitudes by Roderick Chisholm in his "Knowledge and Belief: 'De Dicto' and 'De Re'" (1976). Latitudinarianism has since also sometimes been called an "unrestricted exportation" view.
