Consciousness and Synthesis

(p.93) 5 Consciousness and Synthesis
Phenomenal Intentionality

Colin McGinn

Oxford University Press

How does conscious intentionality differ from the unconscious kind? My thesis is that conscious intentionality involves synthetic intentionality, while unconscious intentionality (if there is any) involves merely associative intentionality. More exactly, conscious intentionality has the power of synthesis, while unconscious intentionality does not have this power. The notion of synthesis and synthetic intentionality are duly explained.

Keywords:   conscious intentionality, synthesis, analysis, synthetic intentionality, associative intentionality
