Paper - Abstract

Paper StatisticsDisclaimer


  1. This is a rough draft of a manuscript written in preparation for a larger work in progress: Ideas of Action: William James to Elizabeth Anscombe. Its contents in a much attenuated form will contribute to the discussion of causation1 and human action.
  2. I have not undertaken a serious editing of this manuscript, insofar as it will never be published outside the internet and the revisions may be ongoing until the larger ms is complete.
  3. Soon, I will post on the Internet an exegetical work on Chisholm's views on agency. There is occasional reference to this paper in this document. Those familiar with Chisholm's views need not await the posting of that document.
