§1. When a man has a desire, three conditions are satisfied. First, a description of some state of affairs in the form of a proposition or some conjunction of propositions will provide an answer to the question ‘What does he want?’; secondly, this will be a description of a future state of affairs; and thirdly, the man will tend or intend to do something as tending to bring about that state of affairs. We may call these three criteria the propositional, the prospective, and the conative.
