What thought requires

In Joao Branquinho (ed.), The Foundations of Cognitive Science. Oxford: Clarendon Press 121 (2001)
Abstract
Examines further the criteria for attributing thought to an object or creature by illuminating the relation between thought, language, and world on the one hand, and the sort of structure that thought and language require on the other. Examines the implications the Unified Theory has with regards to this relation, and challenges the widespread belief that we will not really understand the intentional attitudes, conceptualization, or language until we can give a purely extensional, physicalist account of them.
