riginally presented at the Rotman Institute of Philosophy at the University of Western Ontario on September 17, 2010. Several recent authors - Loar, McGinn, Strawson, and Horgan, among others - have argued that the intentionality proper to conscious experience is somehow prior to, and grounds, other forms of intentionality. Here as elsewhere in philosophy, however, it is not always clear what is meant by "priority" and "grounding." Although the kind of priority these authors have in mind is distinctively metaphysical, in this paper I present a way of unpacking the priority of the intentionality proper to conscious experiences in epistemological terms.
