“intentio”. New research on intentionality in the Middle Ages

« Intentio ». Nouvelles recherches sur l’intentionnalité au Moyen Âge

Summary

The aim of this workshop is to give a panorama of new and on-going research on the concepts of “intention” and “intentionality” in medieval philosophy. Influenced by the Brentanian Tradition (and later by Phenomenology), medievalists have mainly focused on the noetic dimension of “intentional acts”, sustained by a reading of the commentaries of De anima, thereby giving a slightly too unilateral perspective on the concept of “Intentionality”. By replacing the concept of intentio in the various contexts in which it emerges (ethics, politics, grammar, logic, physics, etc.) and by exploring diverse sources (juridical, theological, etc.), our purpose will be to get a broader, maybe less univocal, understanding of the medieval concept of intentionality, better mirroring the richness and complexity of its diverse uses during the Middle Ages.
