Chapter Summary

Jeannie Lum's work exhibits a thorough understanding of both the Chinese and the Western sensibility and a strong sense of the empirical reality of all the issues when applied to real life problems in education. The propositional content of the author's unconscious intentional state functions causally in producing his behavior, and the same propositional content can be either conscious or unconscious. The unconscious, when unconscious, consists of a set of brain capacities which are in principle capable of turning the unconscious intentional state into a conscious form. But that makes it look as if unconscious intentional states, when unconscious, have the ontology of Background abilities. Of course, in actual cases, there may be all sorts of reasons why the unconscious intentional state is blocked from consciousness, such as brain damage, repression, or simple forgetfulness.
