Reasoning Practically deals with a classical philosophical topic, the link between thought and action--how we think about what we do or ought to do, and how we move from thinking to doing. The essays by such renowned contributors as Donald Davidson, Barry Stroud, Cass R. Sunstein, SeylaBenhabib, and Gerald Dworkin, cover a range of issues raised when we link reason and practice. This collection connects state-of-the-art philosophical work with concrete issues in social life and political practice, making it of interest not only to philosophers, but to political theorists, legalscholars, and any researcher interested in the practical application of reason.
Edna Ullmann-Margalit is at Hebrew University, Jerusalem.
