Intentionality - "is at the heart of knowing. We live in meaning, and we live 'towards,' oriented to experience. Consequently there is an intentional structure in textuality and expression, in self-knowledge and in knowledge of others.

However, to be consistent with the realist position adopted here, more is needed to become public policy: The policy-as-stated must be actually carried out. Thus, the phrase in our definition, adopted, implemented, and enforced by a governmental body , is meant to emphasize that the policy-as-stated must be put into practice in a manner consistent with the stated intentions. Implementation has been sorely neglected in the past. We must also allow the possibility of a dis-juncture between a policy statement and an actual policy. That is, what is declared may not be done and what might be done may not be what was declared.
