Zweck und Mittel. Zur Klärung einiger Grundbegriffe der Handlungstheorie

Theodor Ebert
Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg
I argue that since means (Mittel) are of an objective nature, are things (in a broad sense of the word) and ends (Zwecke) on the other hand are states of affairs (Sachverhalte), there cannot be chains of means and ends where an achieved end can be taken to be a means to another end.
