In lieu of an abstract, here is the first paragraph:

According to the ‘standard theory’, propositional attitudes are two-place relations holding between subjects and propositions. In the present paper, I consider the prospects of offering an analogue for non-propositional attitudes. As we will see, many of the same types of motivations and advantages that have made the standard theory of propositional attitudes attractive apply to non-propositional attitudes as well. Of course, in the case of non-propositional attitudes, objects other than propositions are called for and the suggestion to be offered is that non-propositional attitudes are two-place relations holding between subjects and properties.
