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.

MEDIA 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
