Higher-order Thought Theory Meets Phenomenal Intentionality Theory

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Higher-order theories analyse consciousness as higher-order mental representation. Phenomenal intentionality theories understand mental representation in terms of mental qualitative character or qualia. What happens when we try to combine the two, understanding higher-order mental representation, hence consciousness, in terms of phenomenal intentionality? That's the idea this paper explores.
