Hume and the Debate on 'Motivating Reasons'

In Charles Pigden (ed.), Hume on Motivation and Virtue. Palgrave Macmillan (2009)
Abstract
This paper argues for a novel interpretation of Hume's account of motivation, according to which beliefs can (alone) motivate action though not by standing as reasons which normatively favour it. It si then suggested that a number of contemporary debates about concerning the nature of reasons for action could benefit from such an approach.
