Actions, motives and causes [Book Review]
Philosophical Quarterly 58 (231):353–362 (2008)
|Abstract||In this book Alfred Mele [Motivation and Agency, 2003 OUP] seeks to elaborate and defend a neo-Davidsonian understanding of human agency which is fundamentally causalist: intentional actions are, he thinks, caused and caused in such a way that a causal explanation of them is available in terms of the desires and intentions of the agent.|
