Daniel Dennett's "Consciousness Explained," devotes a long
chapter ('How Words Do Things with Us') to a critique of Levelt's
production model; in doing so he makes important larger points
about the sloppy ways of talking about "intending" and "meaning."
His critique ought to be disturbing for any
communication/production models that appeal to "goals" and
"intentions" as unproblematic.
