Chapter 7 endnote 10, from Lisa Feldman Barrett.
Some context is:
...you need a group of people to agree that a concept exists, such as “Flower” or “Cash” or “Happiness.” This shared knowledge is called collective intentionality.
Collective intentionality is a shared understanding of what exists, what’s important, and what actions are required—the goals, values, states of affairs in the world, or, as in this case, the meaning of a phrase or an action.
