Beppe had a Dream

Giuseppe Attardi and Maria Simi

The situation which occurred in a dream provides the framework for discussing properties of the theory of viewpoints and in particular the issue of different denotations from different perspectives. We introduce the principle of "referent sharing" in communications and argue that common knowledge resulting from communication should only use constants whose referent is "manifest" to the parties involved.
