Brentano's work is under studied but significant, and not just for his revival of the importance of intentionality. This work's discussion (and rejection) of unconscious thought (as such), its separation of presentation and judgment, and its merger of will and feeling are also significant. Brentano's prose is lucid, and his clear distinction of his position from his immediate forbears is also useful for the reader attempting to keep 19th century psychology/philosophy in order.
