Intention is one of the masterworks of twentieth-century philosophy in English. First published in 1957, it has acquired the status of a modern philosophical classic. The book attempts to show in detail that the natural and widely accepted picture of what we mean by an intention gives rise to insoluble problems and must be abandoned. This is a welcome reprint of a book that continues to grow in importance.
Der vorliegende Band versammelt die Beiträge eines interdisziplinären Symposiums über Musikausstellungen, das im Rahmen eines größeren Projektes an der Folkwang Universität der Künste in Essen stattfand. Museen sind Orte des Lernens und der Erinnerung aber auch der Freizeit, der Kommunikation und des Staunens. Kuratorische Intentionen und Rezeptionsweisen ergeben sich in Abhängigkeit von vielfältigen Bedingungen. Entsprechend breit gefächert ist die Spanne möglicher Untersuchungsfelder. Die Autorinnen und Autoren widmen sich der Präsentation von musikalischen Themen im Museum aus musikhistorischer, musikethnologischer, musikpädagogischer und museumspädagogischer Perspektive. Ihre Erkenntnisse und Erwägungen basieren ebenso auf museumspraktischen Erfahrungen wie auf akademischen Studien. Es ergibt sich ein Bild unterschiedlicher und doch vielfach miteinander verbundener Aspekte. This volume brings together the papers from an interdisciplinary symposium on music exhibitions which was held as part of a major project at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen. Museums are places of education and memory, but also places for leisure, communication and wonder. Curatorial intentions and types of reception are dependent on a wide range of conditions. The spectrum of possible areas of study is similarly broad. The authors focus on the presentation of musical themes in Museums from the perspectives of music history, ethnomusicology, music pedagogy and museum pedagogy. Their insights and analyses are based on both practical museum experience and academic study. The picture that emerges is one of varying but in many ways related aspects.
"...an excellent and comprehensive discussion of a debate that was initiated in this century in William Wimsatt's and Monroe C. Beardsley's influential article 'The Intentional Fallacy.'...this is a splendidly conceived and very useful collection of essays. Readers will want to take issue with the arguments of individual authors, but this is to be expected in a volume at the cutting edge of a fertile philosophical controversy." --David Novitz, The Philosophical Quarterly "What is the connection, if any, between the author's intentions in (while) writing a work of literature and the truth (acceptability, validity) of interpretive statements about it?" With this question, Gary Isminger introduces a literary debate that has been waged for the past four decades and is addressed by philosophers and literary theorists in Intention and Interpretation. Thirteen essays discuss the role of appeals to the author's intention in interpreting works of literature. A well-known argument by E.D. Hirsch serves as the basic text, in which he defends the appeal to the author's intention against Wimsatt and Beardsley's claim that such an appeal involved "the intentional fallacy." The essays, mostly commissioned by the editor, explore the presuppositions and consequences of arguing for the importance of the author's intentions in the way Hirsch does. Connections emerge between this issue and many fundamental issues in metaphysics and the philosophy of mind as well as in aesthetics. The (old) "New Criticism" and current Post-Structuralism tend to agree in disenfranchising the author, and many people now are disinclined even to consider the alternative. Hirsch demurs, and arguments like his deserve the careful attention, both from critics and sympathizers, that they receive here. Literary scholars and philosophers who are sympathetic to Continental as well as to Anglo-American styles of philosophy are among the contributors. "This is a timely book appearing as it does when postmodernist views of the death of the author are disappearing quickly from the scene. As a collection it exemplifies the best work that is being done on this problem at the moment, and it will no doubt inspire further debate." --The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism "[T]his volume contains important articles illuminating the central debate over the role and relevance of authorial intentions in literary interoperation." --British Journal of Aesthetics

Draws on original experiments as well as scientific research to explore a theory that the entire universe is connected by a vast energy field that can be manipulated for the betterment of the world using positive thought processes.
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has researched intention as a force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. This beautiful gift edition of Wayne’s international bestseller explores intention—not as something we do—but as an energy we’re a part of. We’re all intended here through the invisible power of intention—a magnificent field of energy we can access to begin co-creating our lives! Part I deals with the principles of intention, offering true stories and examples showing how to make the connection. Wayne identifies the attributes of the all-creating universal mind of intention as kind, loving, beautiful, expanding, endlessly abundant, and receptive, emphasizing the importance of emulating this source of creativity. In Part II, he offers an intention guide with specific ways to apply the co-creating principles in daily life. Part III is an exhilarating description of Wayne’s vision of an individual connected at all times to the universal mind of intention. "Intention is a force in the universe, and everything and everyone is connected to this invisible force."
