Beschreibung des Verlags
When we say we 'act for a reason', what do we mean?
And what do reasons have to do with being good or bad?
Introducing readers to a foundational topic in ethics, Eric Wiland considers the reasons for which we
act. You do things for reasons, and reasons in some sense justify what you do. Further, your reasons belong to you, and you know the reasons for which you act in a distinctively first-personal way. Wiland lays out and critically reviews some of the most popular contemporary accounts of how reasons can function in all these ways, accounts such as psychologism, factualism, hybrid theories, constitutivist theories, and finally Anscombean views of reasons.
Reasons also includes a brief guide to further reading to help readers master this important topic in contemporary writing in ethics and the philosophy of action.
