Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Preston

Jennifer Hornsby offers new answer to some old questions about action and bodily movement. She arrives at these by following through to its logical conclusion the observation that we describe and identify actions through their effects, and by careful proscription of the several grammatical and semantic confusions that have darkened the subject of human action. Without resort to a theory of volitions, she shows how we may live with the idea that actions do not as actions have any purer or more intrinsic descriptions than in terms of their effects. 

Annotations in ink throughout, but book otherwise in excellent condition.
