Despite increasing interest in the work of Watsuji Tetsurō, his discussion of intentionality remains underexplored. Developd here is an interpretation and application of his view. First, Watsuji's arguments for the inherently social character of intentionality are unpacked, how they connect with his more general discussion of embodiment and betweenness is considered, and then his view is situated alongside phenomenologists like Husserl, Heidegger, and Merleau-Ponty. Next, it is argued that Watsuji's characterization of the social character of intentionality is relevant to current discussions in phenomenological psychopathology. How it can help illuminate the character and structure of some anomalous experiences in schizophrenia is considered. It is further argued that this application can enrich existing attempts to connect Watsuji and psychopathology, such as those found in the work of the psychiatrist Kimura Bin.
