Intention is a term with origin in Latin I tried that allows to name the determination of the Will towards an end. The intentional is conscious (It is carried out in pursuit of a goal). For example: “Sorry, I didn’t mean to hit you.”, “My intention was to keep a little calm and not generate a new confrontation”, “I’m upset because I still couldn’t figure out what Romina’s intention is”.
The intention is usually linked to the desire that motivates an action and not its result or consequence. If a soccer player hits an opponent while trying to kick the ball, it will be said that it was a hit without intention, since the player in question intended to push the ball and not hurt his colleague.
This makes it possible to distinguish between the good intention and the bad intention. There are acts that are carried out with good intention (with a noble objective) although their consequences are harmful, while other actions are born with bad intention when their objective is to hurt or hurt.
An example of a well-intentioned comment that ends up hurting others occurs when a person He asks another about a certain relative, and the interlocutor is saddened and replies that he died. The subject unwittingly removed a painful memory, since he was really interested in knowing how the deceased person was doing and, obviously, he did not know about death.
In the same way, we cannot ignore a term that makes use of the word at hand and that is increasingly used at a general level. It is about what is known as voting intention, which is the will presented by the people who are asked to vote for one party or another in the next elections.
Thus, for example, it is common that, always long before there are elections, a series of surveys is carried out among citizens to determine what estimate of the vote is calculated to exist. In this way, it will be possible to know or, at least, foresee which will be the candidate that will be the winner in those.
In the case of Spain, these actions are carried out by the Sociological Research Center (CIS), which has been undertaking them periodically to find out what the country’s citizens think and what they want to do in the upcoming elections.
It is also important to note that, in a colloquial way, we use the expression “first intention”. What he tries to explain with her is that someone has acted impulsively, without stopping to think about what he was going to do or say.
On the other hand, there is the “second intention”. When that expression is used, what you want to convey is that a specific person is doing something not frankly, but with the intention of achieving something. That is to say, that he hides his true intentions because he hopes to obtain some type of result that will benefit him.
The philosophyFinally, it defines the intentionality as the relationship between consciousness and the world. This means that intentionality is linked to the activity of the mind with reference to an object.
