Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this course we will discuss recent prominent accounts of practical rationality and practical reasoning. We will also explore the differences between theoretical reasoning and practical reasoning. The seminar will be a close reading of John Broome’s book -Rationality through Reasoning- (Wiley Blackwell 2013). In addition, we will also discuss critical articles on Broome’s work.
All students are expected to have a copy of Broome’s book (paperback edition is available) at the beginning of the seminar. Copies of Broome's book "Rationality through Reasoning" will be available at the Facultas-bookstore at the NIG by the beginning of the term.
