This leads to distinguish between primary, secondary, ..., n-ary types of delusional arguments. Examples of delusional arguments leading to delusion of reference, delusion of influence, thought-broadcasting delusion and delusion of grandeur are described and then analysed. This suggests finally a way susceptible of improving the efficiency of cognitive therapy for delusions.} }
