Two essays on the objective intentional content of art have been published under the
Artworlds imprint, both written by Richard Leachman.
Cognition and Cultural Change (1998 - ISBN 0 9517150
5 4) is a 60,000-word exposition of the theory of the objective intentional
contents of artworks.
Recognition and Response in Contemporary Art (2000
- ISBN 0 9517150 4 6) is a 5,000-word account of the common failure to
distinguish between the (objective) recognition of the artist's intentional
content in an artwork, and the (subjective) response to that content.
It includes a brief theoretical description of how an artwork is technically
visually constructed, and how that is universally accessible as a precise
and specific content within the work.
