Analytic Phenomenology, Intentionality and Consciousness

IUSS online Workshop - October 13-15, 2021

The Mark of the Mental Project (PRIN 2017)
October 13-15, 2021

Analytic philosophers of mind have traditionally conceived intentionality as a naturalistically acceptable relation holding between a subject's internal states and the targets represented by those states. Yet, recently, a growing number of philosophers has diverted from this tradition, analyzing intentionality in terms of a subject’s phenomenal experience. This diversion is now gaining momentum, and the number of philosophers breaking free from the naturalistic tradition is rapidly rising; so much so that a "phenomenological turn" is now taking place in the analytic philosophy of mind. Analytic phenomenology aims to explain intentionality in terms of phenomenal properties and tries to expand the phenomenal domain to non-sensory states, defending the claim that cognitive states (such as beliefs and desires) have a phenomenology in their own right.
In this workshop, we are going to explore this new wave of analytic phenomenology. In addition to contributed papers, the program includes three keynote talks, all delivered by leading figures in the field:
Prof. Katalin Farkas (Central European University): Phenomenal intentionality and phenomenal functionalism
Prof. Angela Mendelovici (University of Western Ontario), Deep internalism
- Prof. Daniel Stoljar (Australian National University), Acquaintance-based VS rationality-based accounts of introspection.
