Pressestimmen"It is a great contribution to contemporary philosophical debate and is likely to make an impact." Philosophy in Review "Brute Rationality is a very fine book. It is crisply written, laced with wit, and carefully argued... I recommend Brute Rationality to anyone who is interested in issues of practical rationality and how they bear upon moral theory." Ethics "Brute Rationality is a remarkable book. It is elegant and engaging, and it aims to deliver s traightfoward solutions to problems not addressed by other theories of practical rationality. The theory of normative reasons developed in Brute Rationality is both detailed and novel." - Sergio Tenenbaum, University of Toronto
