In this paper, we elaborate on our earlier work on modelling the mental states of PRS-like agents by considering the logical properties of intentions and various rationality postulates for PRS-like agents that are a consequence of this modelling, in particular Bratman's asymmetry thesis, the side effect problem for intentions and Rao and Georgeff's nontransference principles. We show that PRS-like agents do enjoy many of the accepted logical properties of intention and rationality postulates as
