Title: Ryan Cox
Title: Knowing Why

Abstract: We each seem to have a special way of knowing rational  
explanations of our own actions and mental states, a way by which we cannot  
know rational explanations of the actions and mental states of others.  
However, many theorists believe that things are not as they seem. They  
believe that we always know rational explanations of our own actions and  
mental states in the same way we know rational explanations of the actions  
and mental states of others, that is, by inference. Call this the  
inferential theory. The standard argument given for the inferential theory  
is a kind of inference to the best explanation. The explanandum of which  
the inferential theory is claimed to be the best explanation is a kind of  
systematic error and ignorance about rational explanations. In this paper I  
present two arguments against the inferential theory and criticise the  
standard argument for it.
