This paper is a follow-up to my “Attributes of Mind”. I find it strange that people pay lip service to Brentano without making much effort to find out exactly what he held. And it is far more challenging and momentous than the usual anodyne versions of it suggest (of course the mind is about stuff!). The notion of transcendence-cum-immanence as a fundamental feature of reality is not at all a platitude. If Brentano is right, the mind is really very special. I have the feeling that he didn’t want to soil this specialness with the common muck of spatial extension.
