Gods and mental states : the causation of action in ancient tragedy and modern philosophy of mind
In New Essays on the Explanation of Action. Palgrave-Macmillan. pp. 358--385 (2009)
This paper argues that contemporary philosophy of mind and action could learn much from the structure of action explanation manifested in ancient Greek tragedy, which is less deterministic than typically supposed and which does not conflate the motivation of action with its causal production.
