Abstract The topic of this paper is that class of paradoxes of self-reference whose members involve intensional notions such as knowing that, saying that, etc. The paper discusses a number of solutions that have been proposed by, e.g., Prior and several AI workers, and argues that they are inadequate. It argues, instead, for a dialetheic/paraconsistent resolution. A formal theory of propositions is given; this is based on arithmetic, and treats propositions as sentences. In the theory the paradoxes are accommodated in a satisfactory manner. An Appendix establishes that the contradictions in the theory do not spread to the underlying arithmetic machinery.
