MOREIRA, Sylvio Allan Rocha  e  SOUZA, Carlos Barbosa Alves de. Intentionality and Language (II): Some Remarks on Tomasello, Searle, and Denett. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.4, pp.451-459. ISSN 0102-3772.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0102-37722015042250451459.

In the present paper we propose that the concept of intentionality is a relevant tool to interpret human symbolic repertoires. We analyze how the concepts of intentionality and verbal language are articulated in Tomasello's Usage-Based Theory of Language Acquisition, Searle's Illocutionary Acts Theory, and Dennett's Intentional Systems Theory, seeking to identify their role on determining human cognition. These theories suggest interdependence between these concepts, which differ among themselves as to how this relation is articulated. They also emphasize the importance of symbolic repertoires, especially verbal language, to human cognition. As intentionality is a feature of human cognition, a link between verbal language and intentionality for the functioning of human cognition is a topic to be investigated in scientific psychology.

Palavras-chave : intentionality; verbal language; Tomasello; Searle; Dennett.
