Haugeland on Representation and Intentionality

Haugeland on Representation and Intentionality

(p.135) 9 Haugeland on Representation and Intentionality
The World in the Head

Robert Cummins

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on John Haugeland's theory of intentionality and correlative theory of objectivity. It compares the points of agreement between Haugeland's theories and Robert Cummin's 1996 publication Representations, Targets, and Attitudes (RTA). RTA distinguishes between the target a representation has on a given occasion of its application and takes representation deployment to be the business of intenders. On the other hand, Haugeland's theory of intentionality determines the target of a representation on a given occasion and specifies what targets are possible for a system to have.

Keywords:   John Haugeland, theory of intentionality, correlative theory of objectivity, Robert Cummin, Representations, Targets, and Attitudes
