A Not -So- Simple View of Intentional Action

David K. Chan

A not so simple view of intentional action

En: Pacific Philosophical Quarterly, No. 80, 1999, pp. 1-16.

Abstract:

“The Simple View (Sv) holds that for someone to intentionally A, he must intend to A. Critics of SV point to intentional actions which, due to belief-conditions or consistency constraints, agents cannot intend. By recognizing species of intention which vary with the agent’s confidence in acting, I argue that the stringency of consistency constraints depends on the agent’s confidence. A sophisticated SV holds that the species of intending is related to the degree of intentionality of the action. Finally, I show that where agents do what they believe impossible, without intending to do so, the action is not intentional.”
