    Abstract

    The sleeping beauty problem raises the question of how changes in self-locating beliefs should affect our beliefs about the world. I argue that the responses to the sleeping beauty problem that have been advocated in the literature lead to highly counterintuitive consequences. In light of this, I argue that we should adopt a different account of the dynamics of de se beliefs.
