The Standard Story of Action and the Problem of Agential Guidance

##plugins.themes.bootstrap3.article.main##

Jesús H. Aguilar

Resumen

El problema de la agencia guiada consiste en explicar la posibilidad de guiar una acción puramente en términos reduccionistas causales. Después de examinar la articulación que Harry Frankfurt ofrece de este problema, la respuesta causal comúnmente aceptada es explorada y cuestionada. Dos desafíos explicativos generales se identifican como decisivos para evaluar la viabilidad de una respuesta causal al problema de la agencia guiada: primero, el poder identificar correctamente las fuentes detrás de las acciones guiadas a través de intenciones guías, y, segundo, el reconocimiento de los límites de una estrategia basada en el contenido como el modo de identificar una acción que es guiada.
