Abstract

The quantum-mechanical measurement problem is briefly discussed and the philosophical lessons are drawn. In particular, the relevant role of dynamics is pointed out and this is presented as a trade-off between determination and correlation. Then it is shown that also the mind should be understood as a dynamical relationship between active reference and representation. A new understanding of intentionality is finally proposed.
