Reasons : Explanatory and normative

In Constantine Sandis (ed.), New Essays on the Explanation of Action. Palgrave-Macmillan (2009)
Abstract
A thesis familiar by being as often disputed as defended has it that intentional action is action for a reason. The present paper contributes to the defence of a weaker version of it, namely: Acting with an intention or a purpose is acting (as things appear to one) for a reason.
