A historical and conceptual reconstruction of the theories developed in Graz at the turn of the 19th century by a group of philosophers and experimental psychologists led by Alexius Meinong. The majority of the contributions to this work seek to adhere closely to the original texts in order to provide a reliable account of difficult and complex themes, while also aiming to reconstruct their vocabulary and conceptual framework. Nevertheless, the purpose of the work is mainly theoretical, not historical. The intention is, firstly, to propose for contemporary debate a way of 'doing' philosophy which was closely bound up with sciences of its time, and in particular with psychology. Secondly, the aim is to present conceptions developed in Brentano's 'theory of intentional reference' today viewed mainly as the analytic reduction of a semantic theory of intentionality. Thirdly, the book starts from the conviction that a theory of direct reference, in its variants developed by Bretano's pupils and today put forward by certain sectors of the cognitive sciences and research in artificial intelligence, finds substantial matter for reflection in the theories developed by Meinong's school in Graz.
