"Graham has produced a careful and well-reasoned account of action, agency, and practical reasoning.... Recommended for upper-division undergraduates through practitioners." Choice
"Overall, Graham makes a compelling case that an adequate normative theory must take account of the social dimension of human life." Ethics, Christopher McMahon, University of California, Santa Barbara
"This is the best book in a recent resurgence of interest in social groups." Perspectives on Politics
This book proposes a theory of practical reasoning that rests on an appeal to universal features of human agency. It contributes to a growing literature on the relation between actions and institutions; between individuals and the collectivities to which they belong; and between those collectivities and the conditions of agency which they impose. The primary audience for the book will be political philosophers, but the implications of Graham's arguments for political action will interest a secondary readership.
