Topic areas


Topic: There are so many kinds of intentions: proximal, distal, immediate, prior, '-in-action', present-directed, future-directed, motor, etc. How are they connected to each other and what role do they play in the initiation of actions? This conference aims to explore how various concepts of intention can explain action and how they are related to some other mental states that are said to play a role in initiating and guiding actions, such as motor representations and, khm, pragmatic representations.
