Longue Durée Intentionality

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, 25 April 2022

The aim of this workshop is to enrich our narrative of how the notion of intentionality appeared and evolved in the history of philosophy. In order to do so, it will bring together scholars specializing in each of the main periods in the history of (Western) philosophy, and invite them to explore the topic of intentionality in their areas of specialization, either by reinterpreting already well-known historical episodes, or by bringing new ones to the fore. Such broad diachronic (longue durée) work on intentionality promises to be mutually enriching for the participants, as studies in one period are likely to shed new light on aspects that have gone unnoticed or neglected in the scholarship in another period, and perhaps even improve our understanding of already well-known discussions.
