about

Intentionality is one of the central problems of modern philosophy. How can a thought, action or belief be about something? Sachs draws on the work of Wilfrid Sellars, C I Lewis and Maurice Merleau-Ponty to build a new theory of intentionality that solves many of the problems faced by traditional conceptions.

Editorial Reviews

"Sachs has written a perceptive and well-argued book about a set of very challenging authors. If one wishes to understand the deepest issues that thread current neo-pragmatist thought, one could do no better than to pick up Sachs¿ book." ¿ Steven Levine, The Philosophical Quarterly "Sachs¿s Intentionality and the Myths of the Given is a worthwhile text. It provides careful and precise elucidations of Sellars¿s Myth. It deepens the historical context and understanding of important debates in contemporary philosophy, especially analytic philosophy ¿ for which Sachs¿s contribution might be invaluable. And it joins a growing chorus of works that bring phenomenological philosophers into prominent dialogue with more widely read philosophers." ¿ Eric Chelstrom in Phenomenological Reviews
