This chapter revaluates the concept of intentional fallacy in relation to the accidental deaths related to the theater discussed in the first part of this volume. It suggests that there is no intentional fallacy when it comes to the theater by looking to the critical (mis)fortunes of the intentional fallacy itself. This chapter also argues that the text-bound dismissal of intentionality reveals an almost agentless quality that is characterized by three fallacies of logic and morality alike.
