    Abstract

    Resumo: Defende-se a existência de objectos abstractos e o papel causal destes, em uma ontologia platónica, tal como foi sugerido pelo trabalho de Roderick Chisholm. Se esta proposta é plausível, então a natureza e o papel destes abstracta, que se postulam sob a forma de estados de coisas, dão-nos razões para acreditar na possibilidade de uma descrição bem-sucedida e explicativa da intencionalidade humana e animal (tanto em termos de atitudes intencionais, como crenças, e em termos de explicações intencionais) que não esteja restringida ao mundo físico. 

    Palavras-chave: causalidade, encerramento causal, fisicalismo, objectos abstractos, platonismo, Roderick Chisholm 

    Abstract: A defense of the existence and causal role of abstract objects in a Platonic ontology as influenced by the work of Roderick Chisholm. If plausible, the nature and role of abstracta in the form of states of affairs gives us some reason to believe that a successful description and explanation of human and animal intentionality (both in terms of intentional attitudes like beliefs and in terms of intentional explanations) that is not closed to the physical world. 

    Keywords: abstract objects, causal closure, causation, physicalism, platonism, Roderick Chisholm
