Non-cognitivism and motivation
In Constantine Sandis (ed.), New Essays on the Explanation of Action. Palgrave Macmillan (2009)
|Abstract||In sum, the non-cognitivist account of motivation is far from unproblematic. The non-cognitivist has trouble telling us what moral attitudes are in a way that is consistent with the phenomenon of variable motivation. Given that the cognitivist has an easy explanation of variable motivation, it seems that cognitivism is preferable to non-cognitivism on the score of motivation, which is a reversal of the way the issue is usually perceived.|
