In this seminar, we will examine historical (and some contemporary) views about the objects and contents of thought. Our focus will be on debates about the ?way of ideas? in the early modern period, including the question of whether ideas help deal with the problem of empty terms/non-existent objects, the distinction between ideas and propostions, and the role of ideas and objects of thoughts in distinguishing types of mental states. We will also examine some later views such as those from Brentano, A.N. Prior, Betrand Russell, Alexius Meinong, William Alston, and more recent work on non-propositional intentionality.
