Well, according to sociology intention is rather a sort of justification. Which has certain characteristics. First of all, is intention public. It is used in and for action. The word commonsense means so much that everyone is okay with something. The opinion is confirmed. Second, that it becomes anticipated. It goes along with which people are in a regular way doing. Third, intention is reflexive. If needed it can be adapted to the circumstances. Whatever the goal might be. This is an externalist stance, and this means we don't have to look in the brain for intention.
So in sociology is intention justification and only by its collective dimension we can recognize others have the same intention than us. Max Weber writes about chance, like in probability. Which is dependent on two variables. The first is recursiveness, and the second is ratio which is no more than support from an audience. All this is called understanding. This understanding is needed for socialization to occur. Which is in the end no more than belief in norms and values. This form of socialization has been opposed by G.H. Mead and he brings the concept of social behaviorism within. In this way interactional sociology has come to being. We see this also when we look at roles. Because roles are prescriptions of behavior, which is allowed, or not. It is in fact a social theory of action. Not of status. The meaning of the word professional is nothing more than to be bound to the own role. There are four demands to fulfill a role. The intention has to be there. You know all the dangers and rules. Others find it good. You are able to cope with uncertainty and ambiguity. A role is in fact a multiplicity. Because it mobilizes social knowledge. Intention is hereby very important.
Interaction incorporates organization itself. Until there is no engagement anymore. Politeness and recursiveness are not mandatory but are kept in mind. We save the face of the other. There are social transactions which are dependent to be validated. The true nature of interaction is "the situation." In fact, the situation is a sort of envelope which filters and selects like a stable frame. This is done to test the engagement to survive. It is important to note this mechanism doesn't work deterministic. It is true you can be caught up in a situation and of course there are constraints. But also possibilities. Concepts are always seen from a long term vision and there is in sociology rather an uncertain relation for appropriate things. Like "the inference-ticket." It is within the action, it is practical and it is a move in a game. There can in this way be noted that sociology forms a hollow and incomplete view of intention-in-action.
