Acting for the Right Reasons, Alison Hills (Oxford)

I begin with the idea of acting for a reason. I distinguish Humean and Kantian approaches to this question and sketch some familiar objections to them. Then I defend a third possibility: a dispositional account of acting for a reason. I then apply this approach to the question of acting for moral reasons; that is, doing the right thing for the right reason.
