In the school of Franz Brentano intentionality was understood to be the consciousness of an object. Under this heading the members of this school explored various problems, some of them on the side of consciousness, others on the side of the object, as well as the problem of what kind of relation intentionality is (if indeed it is a relation). Anton Marty, one of Brentano’s most orthodox students, addressed the full range of problems to be treated in a theory of intentionality. His early work in this area is well represented by his lectures on descriptive psychology (1894-95). Therein we find views regarding the intentional relation (as containment) and the division of intentional acts into three classes (presentations, judgments, and love or hate). The division between real and non-real objects is also put forward in Marty’s descriptive psychology. While all of these early views echo his mentor’s theory of intentionality, Marty later began develop an alternative theory of intentionality. According to this theory, intentionality is regarded as an ideal adequation or, in case the object does not exist, a relative determination. Moreover, the contents of judgment and interest are considered to be non-real objects in the sense that they do not belong to the causal order of the world. The revisions of the theory of intentionality in Marty’s later work thus results in an ontology that significantly sets him apart from other members of the school of Brentano.
