The sixth condition says that in collective intentionality, there is the need to believe in sharing one's collective goal. I explain how these two conditions suggest that social coordination and collective intentionality should be identifed.
However, if we identify social coordination and collective intentionality then we are led to wrongly attribute collective intentionality also to non-human animals. The Ontogeny of Social Ontology- revisited Rakoczy and Tomasello have contributed to critically informing the necessary distinction between, on the one hand, social coordination, and, on the other hand, collective intentionality.
In order to outline this distinction they provide empirical evidence from experimental research on child development, and the way infants engage in social activities at different stages of their growth. Rakoczy and Tomasello outline the distinction between these two very different kinds of behaviour in order to explain why Searle's claim that collective intentionality can be found not only in human reality, but also in non-human animals including our nearest primate relatives, is wrong.
The analysis of the skills and motivations that constitute collective intentionality according to Searle's six conditions of adequacy 1 has enabled them to hypothesise about how, during the course of normal ontogeny 2, human children move from specifc social interactions involving shared intentionality 3 learning, sharing, informing, helping to participation in institutional realities-involving scenarios.
The difference between competitive and collaborative cooperation can be introduced as follows: This means that in order to talk about collaboration we need to identify the joint intentions that underpin a group activity. A joint intention is directed to a goal that will bring beneft to all the members of the group, independently from the fact that the single actor will get a personal and immediate reward. In fact the way in which chimpanzees work within a group is a competitive or agonistic interaction Hare et al.
In the case of, for instance, group hunting, the participation of single members is motivated by the awareness that 'we are going to share the plunder', and this is going to happen soon. This, conversely, means that the motivation for which each single actor is taking part in a group activity, is driven by the desire to satisfy a personal need that will be rewarded immediately or in the near future.
This kind of group activity is also called 'coalition of alliances', that is a context in which single individuals act together in order to defend the group they belong to from the attack of other — in this specifc case, chimpanzee's — groups. But what is happening in these interactions is just a coordinated execution of the same thing at the same time with responsiveness to one another's behaviour, that is the understanding of one another's intentional behaviour I shall return to this in a moment.
The second kind of cooperation, collaborative cooperation, occurs when the goal is not to compete for given resources. In this context, the reward may be prospective relatively to long-term planning.
And the calculus of future values of goals demands cognitive tools that all non-human animals, including primates, seem to lack. The difference might be that apes do not attribute mental states in order to interpret other's behaviour but they instead attribute only intentional behaviours.
Generally, intentional behaviours are considered to belong to a subcategory of mental states, i. In my account, instead, intentional states are not included in mental states but are characterised by a different set of conditions.

I am not implying that non-human animals cannot be in mental states but just that they cannot be aware of them — and therefore share them- as they cannot understand the content of their mental states see Hutto, And this constitutes a signifcative limitation in the diversifcation of collective action-planning. The reason why — being a human — I can understand my mental states is due to the fact that my mind represents the contents of my own thoughts in terms of propositional attitudes.
And propositional attitudes have a propositional format, a linguistic-like one. But, as pointed out by Searle , intentionality does not need to occur exclusively in the form of a linguistic act 5.
Therefore, I characterise intentional states as describing intentional behaviours. But holding them does not, necessarily, imply the mastery of concepts like beliefs and desires for which there is the need of far more complex forms of representations. And it can only work when the competition is directed to given resources e.
In this sense, my claim is that we should ascribe intentionality to all action-oriented and conscious behaviour, but we should not, given this assumption, jump to the conclusion that all living organisms act intentionally with the same degree of complexity, and we should not accept so easily Searle's claim that many social animals act collectively intentionally.
As a result, the more an agent's communicative system is sophisticated the more the collaborative framework gets articulated in a wider range of possible scenarios.
So, it is important to understand the crucial relevance of the fact that Homo sapiens adopted propositional attitudes and not just intentional attitudes. Because the former is what it takes to have the capacity for collective intentionality. I shall further this issue in the following section. In my account intentional states can exist without being represented in a propositional format.
But what is the content of a symbolic representation? The frst thing to point out is that not all attitudes involve contents, but, following Davidson it can be argued that only propositional attitudes are content-involving, as opposite to intentional attitudes, that do not require propositional contents.
In this account, it is necessary to be able to manipulate complex linguistic forms in order to articulate content- full propositional attitudes. This is because only language has the appropriate structures that enable to express those attitudes. This is a function that a signals-based communicative system — as those we fnd in non- human animals world — cannot exploit in that signals are never used to stand for something else than what is required in coordinating behaviour.
Representations of mental states make use of propositions that are structured with recombinant elements. This is what allows voluntary planning, practical reasoning, and decision making.
In fact this capacity requires the mastery of the tools provided by language. As a result, from the emergentist perspective, propositional-based beliefs and desires that characterise human's practical planning, are likely a quite late developmental achievement Hutto, The likelihood of the claim that I just made is widely supported, for what concerns the characterisation of competitive cooperation or social coordination by the results of empirical fndings.
These experimental tasks stress the quite unmistakable competitive attitude that arise in the behaviour of chimpanzees when put under specifc circumstances. This evidence, the results of Hare at al. Relatively, instead, to the notion of collaborative cooperation or collective intentionality , Carpenter et al. Those children demonstrate their ability to imitate role reversal by spontaneously acting out the other role when appropriate. And even though, chimpanzees' communication can be very sophisticated, it will always remain at the level of individualistic or I-intentionality, lacking the structure of collective or we-intentionality that is characterised by the joint attentional frames that typifes human children communication, normally, from the age of two years old.
In fact, in human ontogeny, we observe how children's communicative experiences occur in a very complex social and pragmatic context. This is the social context in which the child becomes able to coordinate an interaction that comprehends objects and people simultaneously.
The triadic engagement consists in a triangulation of references by means of symbolisation. In other words, a child learns how to direct the attention of someone else to a given object, preparing the ground for joint attentions.
Joint attentions are possible when there is a mutual awareness towards the nature of the object or the event that is the subject of the attention. Tomasello argues that the primary role of symbolic communication is that of enabling an individual to manipulate the attention of, or to share the attention with, another individual.
This referentiality is what enables the other to share attention to some virtually construed entity, that is a symbolic reference that stands for a given entity. This kind of interaction does not occur in non-human primates in that their communicative signals are not used to direct the attention of others through the conveying of information by means of referentiality. Signal references are, rather, used to affect the behaviour of others directly.
This, in all likelihood means that the evolution of human language itself originally arose to satisfy the necessity to infuence the behaviour of others, and only later in phylogeny, to infuence their mental states.
So language is a social entity itself and, therefore, its evolution is driven by the needs of its users. So if the function of communication in non- human primates is, as Tomasello argues, that of infuencing other's behaviour, the function of human communication is also that of infuencing other's mental states.

For symbolic communication is a tool that enables the access to the contents of other's mental states. And as Deacon said, the most effective means for coordinating behaviour, that is being able to anticipate another's mental responses in the context of joint activities, requires imagination and this is a uniquely powerful tool for social manipulation.
