The Possibility of Practical Reason
by J. David Velleman
Publisher: University of Michigan Library 2009
Number of pages: 312
The Possibility of Practical Reason explores the foundational questions of moral psychology: How can any of our behavior qualify as acting for a reason? How can any considerations qualify as reasons for us to act? David Velleman argues that both possibilities depend on there being a constitutive aim of action--something that makes for success in action as such.
