Intention Characters ë PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free E Intention is one of the masterworks of twentieth century philosophy in English First published in 1957 it has acuired the status of a modern philosophical classic The book attempts to show in detail that the natural and widely accepted picture of what we mean by an intention gives rise to insoluble problems and must be abandoned This is a welcome reprint of a book that continues to grow in importan. G E M Anscombe contended that one could not properly engage in ethics the doing of moral philosophy if one had not already developed a suitable analysis of the concept of intentions Intentions underlie and aparently underwrite human activity at least a great deal of it and it is the intention of the human agent that gives itself to moral evaluation We don t judge involuntary or reflex or coerced actions in terms of their rightness or wrongness after all but retain such judging for those acts which we think about and choose to do for reasons But the concept of intention is an odd one as Anscombe demonstrates in the first half of this ninety four page monograph Approaching the issue in terms reminiscent of the later Wittgenstein her teacher and mentor Anscombe undertakes a conceptual analysis of how we use the term intention It s a bit dry and can be rather didactic and abstract as she proceeds to offer examples like what we mean when we ask uestions like why are you X ing and after a while one s eyes can glaze over I m fascinated by this stuff but even I found myself nodding off with all the abstract examples she presents Yet the examples are salient and useful as she unravels the way in which our concept of intention informs our treatment of different kinds of actions and what kind of thing intentions are They aren t things at all she ultimately concludes The term is rather a way we have of describing certain kinds of actions the kinds that lend themselves to moral evaluationIn the second part of the book she begins to offer the interesting observations that make the book significant taking us beyond the first level analysis of how we use the relevant terms like intention for certain kinds of human behavior but not others She draws our attention here to the fact that human action implies subjectness ie an aware deliberating agent and from this she moves to make the important point that the very idea of human action implies the role of desire wanting or as she puts it at one point appetition the occurrence of felt needs in the organism which motivate the organism to action Intentions consist of the agent s direct awareness of its felt needs combined with its awareness of its actions and its beliefs about the world acted upon We cannot she notes settle for an account of moral valuing such as the utilitarians offer which amounts to euating goodness with happiness since happiness is not some particular thing but a general state in which we find ourselves relative to different experiences we have Thus happiness can never euate to the good even if it s uite obvious that happiness is often perhaps even mostly held to be good Here she begins to get into the area of rationality as an explanation for our claims of goodness arguing that practical reasoning implies the presence of the appetitive aspect of the reasoner Arguments for or against particular value choices we make she contends come to an end as Wittgenstein noted for the game of giving reasons in general and the proper end of these is often the appetitive element in the subject s experience But she also notes that not all appetites desires needs wants are eual and that part of the moral game involves assessing and commending or discommending some appetites over others And here she points us at the use of reasons as the mechanism we have for distinguishing and selecting or discarding behaviors which reinforce or weaken particular appetites we may haveWhat do we say to a Nazi she asks who facing his death feels that he must kill just a few Jews in order to be a good Nazi p 74 Certainly the Nazi can argue that doing so is to be a good Nazi for in his understanding being a good Nazi is to kill Jews when you have the chance to do so And what can we say in response to that Only that he must then consider whether being a Nazi is good for him as a human being and here she notes we move into the moral realm But the reasoning aspect involved can be fully satisfied if the Nazi s desire to be good as a Nazi is to be the end of the man s reasoning process But Anscombe in this book declines to step fully into the moral uestions but only to point at them from the standpoint of the concept of intentional behavior She recognizes that the presence of a subject an aware deliberating agent is the underlying assumption for any moral conception But she doesn t offer us a path from this recognition to ethical judgments per seBasically she argues that subjective experience which agents like ourselves have is not simply a version of the sense impressions we get via our sensory organs from the world around us the paradigm beueathed to us by the early British empiricist philosophers John Locke and David Hume Rather she avers our experiences are experiences in action experiences OF acting and that these consist of a broad array of subjective occurrences from the traditional sense impressions we get from the world around us to our felt needs our desires our hungers and indeed our actual movements as we make them Here our intentionality in action is to be found and here too must be the place where the moral dimension kicks in But this little book stops before that happens leaving a moral account based on this picture of things for others to make For Anscombe in this book it appears to be enough that she has unpacked the implications of our notion of intention in regard to how we see and talk about human behavior Whether being a Nazi is right or wrong or any other moral decision is must finally be left for another inuiry where ethical judgments themselves are the subject matter to be taken up Recettes Gourmandes de l'Anjou natural and widely accepted picture of what we mean by an intention gives rise to insoluble problems and must

This book follows a classical scheme of argument where the point is revealed at the end It is therefore necessary to persevere to the end despite freuent bemusement All is revealed through a process of demolishing the arguments of opponents and presenting a reply to them defending intentionality Those interested in philosophy will recognise these views and be amused and filled with admiration at Anscombe s riposte Intention is under attack in modern philosophy This book shows how it is under attack and why it has to be defended
