However interesting this approach is, it poses at least two serious difficulties. For the present purposes, I will focus on two difficulties related only to the sentences with propositional attitude ascriptions. In the first case, I shall consider propositional attitudes with that-clause, in the second case—propositional attitudes expressed without that-clause. Basically, I agree with John Searle and others who think that propositional attitudes, both cognitive and conative, have their direction of fit (the former mindto-world, the latter world-to-mind) that specifically relates propositions to the world (Searle 1983: 8).
37 Similar criticism has been proposed by Tadeusz Ciecierski (2013: 168–169). 38 In his discussion of reism, Woleński seems to hesitate on whether reism preserves intentionality or not. On the one hand, he suggests that there is no apparent reason to think that it cannot embrace intentionality, since Kotarbinski cultivated his philosophical connections with Brentano and Twardowski, and intentionality is the key theme in these authors. On the other hand, he stresses that reism was ‘revisionist’ (Woleński 1985: 226).
On the cover of his classic 1960 book we read that it is ‘an important contribution to understanding the conduct of the ambiguous conflict between the communist bloc on the one hand and the United States and its Free World Allies on the other’. Kotarbiński’s Treatise has been published in the Eastern Bloc. This had had tremendous consequences for the reception of the work of the Polish praxiologist in the West. Here is a telling example. ’ (McClure 1971: 199) Kotarbiński, indeed, made here and there a few references to Marx, but to connect his work with the German classic is no doubt a misunderstanding.
