Intelligence and intentionality 

summaryThis article explores the difficulties of approaching the problem of intelligence independently of any intentional consideration. To do so, first, I examine three classical interpretations of the concept of the mental in order to show their main shortcomings. goal .

All this serves to offer, at summary, a better proposal of basic criteria for the recognition of intelligent beings.
