Overview
This collection of essays by a philosopher of action theory is concerned with deepening our understanding of the notion of intention. In Michael Bratman's view, when we settle on a plan for action we are committing ourselves to future conduct in ways that help support important forms of co-ordination and organization both within the life of the agent and interpersonally. These essays enrich that account of commitment involved in intending, and explore its implications for our understanding of temptation and self-control, shared intention and shared co-operative activity, and moral responsibility. The essays offer discussions of related views by, among others, Donald Davidson, Christine Korsgaard, Harry Frankfurt, and P.F. Strawson.
