Editorial Reviews

Review

'This is the most interesting collection of new articles in the philosophy of action for several years, and a clear signal that the orthodoxies of the last forty years are at last giving way to more plausible and fruitful philosophical ideas.'

- John Hyman, University of Oxford, UK

'Constantine Sandis has done a remarkable job of collecting some of the best essays on explanation of action Sandis' anthology is a wonderfully informative collection of essays on action explanation.' Joseph Ulatowski, University of Nevada, Metapsychology

'The discussions in this collection helpfully locate central issues that are up for re-thinking in the re-assessment of contemporary philosophy of action.' Robert Dunn, University of Sidney, Analysis
