Intentionalism about consciousness is the view that consciousness is a form of intentionality or mental representation. A popular form of intentionalism says that the conscious or phenomenal character of a state of mind is determined by its intentional content. I argue against this form of intentionalism, and in favour of what David Chalmers calls ‘impure’ intentionalism: the view that the conscious character of a state of mind is determined by its entire intentional nature. NB This version should replace an earlier version of this paper which was on my old website.Article
