As we have already seen in Haugepand essay, this is an important moment for Haugeland. There is also the possibility of an intentionality that “involves letting oneself be open to entities in their own range of possibilities, rather than merely those we project on them or need from them,” and it is love that lets the “beloved change oneself and one’s sense of possibilities” Only 9 left in stock more on the way.

However, Crowell points out that, for Haugeland, when we experience the total breakdown of the world in anxiety and being-towards-death, entities are still there, but now have the character of “essential unintelligibility” Our engagement with the world is “ineluctably mediated, by our biological, sociocultural, and intellectual form of life” That is, “we use philosophical discourse to direct one another’s attention to how things are” Zed Adams and Chauncey Maher also deal with the question of objectivity through an in-depth engagement with Tyler Burge’s account of objectivity and perception.
