    On Describing Actions.David Rayfield - 1970 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 13 (1-4):90 – 99.
    In this paper I first give a summary and modification of an analysis of human action for which I have argued elsewhere ( No s, Vol. 2 [1968], No. 2). I then distinguish true, correct and applicable descriptions of actions and propose a thesis by which a single action may be correctly described by more than one description. Finally, I state and argue against the thesis of a paper of A. B. Cody's ( Inquiry, Vol. 10 [1967], No. 2), according (...)

    Cody's Categories.David Rayfield - 1973 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 16 (1-4):419 – 428.
    This paper is a reply to criticism made by A. B. Cody ('Is ?Human Action?; a Category??, Inquiry, Vol. 14 [1971], No. 4) of earlier papers by the author ('On Describing Actions?, Inquiry, Vol. 13 [1970], Nos. 1?2, and ?Action?, No?s, Vol. 2 [1968], No. 2).

    On Miller's Paradoxes and Circles.David Rayfield - 1974 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 17 (1-4):461-464.
    In this paper, 1 reply to A. R. Miller's ?Correct vs. ?Merely True? Act?Descriptions? (this issue). I explain that my distinction between true and correct descriptions of human behavior does not turn on the notion of an ?unbound action?, and hence is not circular in the way Miller suggests. I also discuss his claim that the way I have drawn the distinction leads to ?certain unacceptable consequences for action theory?
