题目：Delusional Belief and Its Content
摘要：This essay proposes a long neglected mechanism in the formation of delusion. In the first part, I will briefly introduce the similarity and difference between normal beliefs and delusional beliefs. The second part will be a quick summary of a dominant theory of delusion, namely the two-factor theory. In the third part, I’m going to raise a question concerning the content of delusion and propose a malfunctioning content generating process which I think is helpful to understand the nature of the formation of delusion. Furthermore, in the fourth part, I will explore whether this malfunctioning content generating process is a third factor. The answer is Yes and No, depending on what it means by factor.
