Joint Intention and We-Intention

Joint Intention and We-Intention

(p.83) 4 Joint Intention and We-Intention
The Philosophy of Sociality

Raimo Tuomela (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The creation and conceptual nature of full-blown we-mode we-intentions and joint intentions is discussed in this chapter. Intending jointly as a group (= in the we-mode) is taken to entail the individual participants' shared we-intentions in the we-mode. A detailed account of we-intentions is given, and an alleged circularity problem concerning the circularity of accounting for joint intentions in terms of we-intentions is dissolved. It is also argued that we-mode joint intentions—and we-mode attitudes and actions in general—are irreducible to their I-mode counterparts. This is largely because of the group-reason requirement that the we-mode involves.
