hell's kitten

(no subject)

My philosophy TA/discussion group leader commented on the two different meanings of "intention". She and a few other students argued that you can do something that you have no intention of doing. I argued that no, you cant, because at some point, even if it's only the split second before you do it, you have the intention of doing it, otherwise you wouldnt do it (accidents dont count). To me, "I intended to do that" = "I meant to do that". I think she was trying to say intention could mean something that you want to do. So, I dont have the intention of doing my homework, but I have to, so I will anyway. To me, if I don't have the intention of doing my homework, I'm not going to do it. She said I was referring to intention with an s, and she's talking about intention with a t. I've never heard these being two different words, and when I look up "intension", it doesnt seem to mean what she thought it did, and when I look up "intention" it means what I thought it does.

Any input?
