With this Thesis an attempt is made at charting the area of the Metaphysics of Intentionality, based mainly on the Philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre. A Philosophical Analysis and an Evaluation of Sartre's Arguments are provided, and Sartre's Theory of Intentionality is supported by recent commentaries on the work of Ludwig Wittgenstein. Sartre's Theory of Intentionality is proposed, with few improvements by the author, as the only modem theory of the mind that can oppose effectively the advance of AI and physicalist reductivist attempts in Philosophy of Mind and Language. Discussion includes Sartre's critique of Husserl, the relation of Sartre's Theory of Intentionality to Realism, its applicability in the Theory of the Emotions, and recent theories of Intentionality such as Mohanty's, Aquilla's, Searle's, and Harney's.
