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.
