Publisher's Summary

In this brisk volume, a case is made that a value is a belief as to how one live one's life if one's psychological architecture is to retain its integrity, and a case is thereby made that intention is an operationalized value. This analysis makes it possible to distinguish between minds that do and minds that do not host selves. (Selves are minds that have values; minds that are not selves do not.) The relationship between weakness of the will and self-deception is made clear, and it is explained how it is that one can knowingly act in self-destructive ways.

    "Kuczynski's best"
    What did you love best about What Is an Intention??

    the straightforwardness. rare among philosophers


    What did you like best about this story?

    the fast pace. the vivid stories.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the part about the guy who is pretending to like opera but actually hates it. made me crack up!


    If you could give What Is an Intention? a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Beyond Frankfurt


    Any additional comments?

    the narrator is very good, a pro obviously, but not right for kuczynski's work. the wrong mentality somehow
