9780199278459: Reasons and Purposes: Human Rationality and the Teleological Explanation of Action

People act for reasons. That is how we understand ourselves. But what is it to act for a reason? This is what Fred Schueler investigates. He rejects the dominant view that the beliefs and desires that constitute our reasons for acting simply cause us to act as we do, and argues instead for a view centered on practical deliberation--our ability to evaluate the reasons we accept. Schueler's account of "reasons explanations: emphasizes the relation between reasons and purposes, and the fact that the reasons for an action are not always good reasons.

Review:

`Review from previous edition ... this book sets out to challenge the reader regarding the Humean theory of motivation and to provide alternative viewpoints based on teleological and normative concepts using argument and analogy ... adopting a conceptual stance such as this will not only
provide further insight into the human need for occupation, but will also aid in developing strategies that will extend our understanding of people as holistic beings.'
