3 See Wundt (1897: 6–7). See entry on Wundt.
6 Brentano in fact provides a number of further distinctive marks of mental phenomena, but he takes ‘having an object’ to be the most distinctive.
8 See Höfler (1897: 412) on so-called ‘objectless’ emotions. Crane (1998) develops a different response to such prima facie counter-examples.
16 In the literature on Brentano this strategy is often ascribed to Höfler and Meinong (1890; see there 1890, 7 and Twardowski (1894 §1)). But it is also among the many things Brentano says in Psychology, see PES (95 [I, 172–3]).
17 See Chisholm (1955/6). Many of the counter-examples in the literature against Brentano’s intentionality thesis are actually counter-examples against Chisholm’s linguistic replacement of intentionality. See for example Martin and Pfeifer (1986) who argue that sentences that report dispositions are intentional sentences. For an overview of Ersatz proposals see part I of Textor (2017).
