Abstract and Keywords

Phenomenology, the movement, has contributed and continues to contribute much to the study of phenomenal consciousness as well as to understanding the role of intentionality in our conscious lives. This article, however, is not about intellectual history or methodological movements. So it is not about such contributions. There is nothing in this article about the movement (Phenomenology) but much about the property (phenomenology). The word ‘intentionality’ is a technical word for the feature of a mental state in virtue of which it is directed at or is about or represents something other than itself.

Keywords: phenomenology, intentionality, unity of the mind, mental state, phenomenal consciousness, conscious lives
