The Possibility of Practical Reason
This volume contains the work that I have done in the philosophy of action since completing the book Practical Reflection. One of the papers, ‘Epistemic Freedom,’ is an expanded version of a chapter in the book; it was written after the book went to press, though it was published first. In most cases, I have done my digging in areas familiar to philosophers of action: problems about agent causation, internal and external reasons, direction of fit, the normative force of formal decision theory, and the rationality of resolute choice. The papers therefore do more to situate my view on the philosophical map than I previously could, though they do less by way of filling in the details.
