Description

This is a collection of published and unpublished essays by distinguished philosopher Michael E. Bratman of Stanford University. They revolve around his influential theory, know as the "planning theory of intention and agency." Bratman's primary concern is with what he calls "strong" forms of human agency-including forms of human agency that are the target of our talk about self-determination, self-government, and autonomy. These essays are unified and cohesive in
theme, and will be of interest to philosophers in ethics and metaphysics.
