Work in Progress

  1. Representing Desires (on the assumption that desires have propositional content and the role that this assumption plays in research on ‘theory of mind’)
  2. Love is Weird (argues that the first-personal intelligibility of love is not explained by its being based on reasons)
  3. On Being Illuminated (presents an argument from disjunctivism in epistemology of perception to disjunctivism about believing for reasons)
  4. Anti-Disjunctivism about Acting for Reasons (develops two arguments against disjunctivism about acting for reasons, one putatively demonstrative but based on highly controversial assumptions, the other more compelling but potentially defeasible)

Thesis
