Some remarks on Intentions, Dispositions, and Normative Constraints

Matteo Negro

Abstract


In order to safeguard the link between rationality and happiness, first of all we have to recognize that this link is not anchored in the first place to the level of the particular action and its external contraints, but to the level of disposition. Particular choices in fact are rational in that they express and manifest a rational disposition to choose, which gives form and unity to the actions themselves. The alternative is a theory of rationality as a causal theory of choice.

Keywords


intentions; dispositions; normative constraints
