Hans Bernhard Schmid

Shared Intentionality and the Origins of Human Communication


ISBN: 978-3-88405-530-4

Price: €8.00 (including 19 % tax)


Collective Intentionality is a relatively new label for shared attitudes such as joint intention, collective belief, or shared emotion. In his recent work, Michael Tomasello argues forcefully that part of what makes collective intentionality so important is that it is the fundamental difference between human and non-human primate cognition. Humans share intentionality, non-human primates do not. This paper evaluates some aspects of this claim from a philosophical perspective. Since the various conceptions of collective intentionality in the received literature differ widely from each other, a closer examination of the nature and role of the observed phenomena seems to be necessary. It is argued that this could lead to a fruitful cooperation between empirical research and conceptual analysis.
