Dear all,

Alex Sandgren will be presenting the following on Thursday at 3,00 in the Muniment room. Everyone welcome.

Title: A New Theory of Intentional Identity

Abstract: There is intentional identity when attitudes have a common focus, whether or not there is an object at that focus. For instance, there is intentional identity when two beliefs are about London and when two beliefs are directed at the same witch. Theories of intentional identity are accounts of when and why intentional attitudes have a common focus in this sense. In this talk, I present a new theory of intentional identity, the triangulation theory, and argue that it has some major advantages over its principal rivals.
