290-5 Graduate Seminar: Consciousness and Collective Intentionality Searle Tu 4-6 234 Moses Hall

There is a recent growing interest in forms of mental life involving more than one person. Traditional the philosophy of mind takes a single person as the locus of mental phenomena. In this seminar, we will explore those forms of intentionality that are essentially social. We will examine their relation to consciousness and the role that they play in the existence of social institutions and social facts generally.
