"This is an outstanding introduction to a central topic in philosophy. For the first time, many of the most influential recent essays on practical reasoning have been collected together in a single volume. With an excellent synoptic introduction and additional new essays, this volume presents a coherent, accessible account of the current debate over the role that reason plays (or does not play) in the genesis of human action. This debate is not only fascinating in its own right; it also has significant implications for our understanding of ethics, value, the mind, and the will."--Sarah Buss, Department of Philosophy, University of IowaPlease note: Arrived too late for the jacket.
