Abstract

The audience for this book includes anyone interested in intentionality, either the modern Husserlian or the classic Latin (Thomistic) version, and the debate over internal and external perception. In addition, semioticians interested in the intersection of signs and cognition would benefit. This book is best appreciated by those with a basic understanding of Thomas Aquinas’s writings, but that is not absolutely necessary. This is not an introductory text since Deely is writing from years of experience researching and writing about St. Thomas and intentionality. The literature on intentionality and Thomas’s perspective is quite robust and easily accessed if the reader cares to do some background research before, or while, reading this book.

Keywords: intentionality, Thomas Aquinas, John Deely, semiotics, realism
