How We Do Things Together: Remarks on Collective Intentionality
Over the past several decades, philosophers have sought to explain the difference between individual intentional actions and acts of collective intentionality. The questions of whether and how two or more individuals can share an intention has been central to this discussion. There have been two broad strategies to answering these questions: we can label these strategies the psychologistic strategy and the normative strategy. I explain why the latter is to be preferred, and I discuss some of the implications of adopting the normative strategy outside of narrow debates in the philosophy of mind.
