Faces of Intention: Selected Essays on Intention and Agency
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThis collection of essays by one of the most prominent and internationally respected philosophers of action theory is concerned with deepening our understanding of the notion of intention. These essays enrich Bratman's account of commitment involved in intending, and explore its implications for our understanding of temptation and self-control, shared intention and shared cooperative activity, and moral responsibility. This collection will be a valuable resource for a wide range of philosophers and their students, and will also be of interest to social and developmental psychologists, AI researchers, and game and decision theorists.
