The Access Problem

The Access Problem

(p.27) 2 The Access Problem
Phenomenal Intentionality

Michelle Montague

Oxford University Press

We enter into many mental states which involve intentional relations with objects. What mechanism determines which objects our mental states are of or about? The chapter calls this the ‘access problem’. The chapter argues that there is at least one ineliminable ‘internal’ condition on mental access to objects, in addition to whatever ‘external’ conditions there may be.

Keywords:   intentionality, phenomenology, object-positing, the access problem, Russell's Principle, perception
