Towards a dynamic theory of intentions

Abstract : In this paper, I offer a sketch of a dynamic theory of intentions. I argue that several categories or forms of intentions should be distinguished based on their different (and complementary) functional roles and on the different contents or types of contents they involve. I further argue that an adequate account of the distinctive nature of actions and of their various grades of intentionality depends on a large part on a proper understanding of the dynamic transitions among these different forms of intentions. One further benefit of this approach is to open the way to a more perspicuous account of the phenomenology of action and of the role of conscious thought in the production of action.
