Talking about Intentionality: Marty and the Language of ‘Ideal Similarity’

Majolino, Claudio


The present study is aimed at reconstructing Marty’s mature account of intentionality. In trying to enhance discussion on what has been called ‘the road to ideelle Verähnlichung’ (Cesalli and Taieb 2012), it will be suggested that the aim of Marty’s treatment of ‘ideal similarity’ is not limited to the abandonment of immanent objects. Noteworthy elements can also be identified in the way in which such an abandonment takes place. Such a way, we will argue, has to do with the specifically linguistic context within which Marty’s talk of ‘ideal similarity’ takes place. Through a detailed commentary on the relevant sections of the Untersuchungen, where intentional reference is compared and contrasted with ordinary similarity, we will try to show how notions such as ‘inner speech-form’ and ‘analogy of proportion’ contribute to shaping Marty’s discussion of intentionality as ‘ideal similarity’.
