“Creaţia este sursa drepturilor de proprietate intelectuală.” “Ba nu, raritatea este.” Aceasta este esenţa disputei istorice dintre cei care consideră că tangibilul şi intangibilul au aceleaşi proprietăţi emanând de la omul în acţiune creatoare şi, astfel, necesită acelaşi regim al drepturilor de proprietate şi cei care, dimpotrivă, le consideră profund diferite şi nepretabile unui tratament analog, de vreme ce doar materia transformată utilitar este rară, ideile amestecate cu ea sunt infinit multiplicabile.

The fast forward changes, due to globalization and structural innovations, have allocated a large importance to human capital. Nowadays, there is a strong tendency to believe that education explains income of individuals, not as a single factor, but also connected to working experience. Intellectual capital is a promoter factor in a knowledge based economy, as the one Europe has.

The paper intends to propose a new view on the way in which the intention (as intentionality, in a phenomenological sense) is formed. In this end, the entire chain from will to action is described, but the analysis is focused only on one part of that chain: from will to intention. Essentially, the study asserts the intention is an unconscious process and, even more, this process is of Darwinist-type.
