Online access

  • Title:
    Intentionality, deliberation and autonomy the action-theoretic basis of practical philosophy
  • Author: Christoph Lumer; Sandro Nannini
  • Description: Action, intention, intentionality -- Action-theoretical conceptions of practical deliberation -- Action-theoretical approaches to freedom, autonomy and responsibility.
    Many important thinkers in the philosophical tradition, like Aristotle or Hume, have used an explicit theory of action as the basis of their respective normative theories of practical rationality and morality. The idea behind this architecture of theories is that action theory can inform us about the origin, bonds, reach and limits of practical reason. The aim of this book is to revive this direct connection between action theory and practical philosophy, in particular to provide systematic action-theoretical underpinnings for the discussion about the normative structure of practical reason.
