Can Animals Act For Reasons?

Hans-Johann Glock

Can Animals Act For Reasons?

En: Inquiry, Vol. 52, No. 3, 232–254, June 2009.

Resumen:

“This essay argues that non-linguistic animals qualify not just for externalist notions of rationality (maximizing biological fitness or utility), but also for internal ones. They can act for reasons in several senses: their behaviour is subject to intentional explanations, they can act in the light of reasons – provided that the latter are conceived as objective facts rather than subjective mental states – and they can deliberate. Finally, even if they could not, it would still be misguided to maintain that animals are capable only of (mechanical) behaviour, not of (intentional) action.”
