    In this article , I set o ff to explore the question “What is belief?” from a first - person perspective. Finding the explanations in analytical philosophy insufficient, I delve into the phenomenological tradition – starting with Edmund Husserl ’ s concept of the horizon. In doing so, I find that the phenomenological tradition seems to contradict the presupposition of beliefs as representations. Directing my attention to finding an alternative explanation, I present Hubert Dreyfus ’ explanation of learning without representations, but sh ow that (by Dreyfus ’ own admission) he does not truly take a decisive step away from representationalism. I present the idea of enaction as a proper alternative to representations. Within this new framework, I present the idea of sense - making as a potentia l direction towards an answer to the question at hand
