Title: Declan Smithies
Affective Experience, Reasons for Action, and Desire
What is the role of affective experience in explaining how our desires  
provide us with reasons for action? When we desire that p, we are thereby  
disposed to feel attracted to the prospect that p, or to feel averse to the  
prospect that not-p. In this paper, we argue that these affective  
experiences – feelings of attraction and aversion – provide us with reasons  
for action in virtue of their phenomenal character. Moreover, we argue that  
desires provide us with reasons for action only because they are  
dispositions to have affective experiences. On this account, affective  
experience has a central role to play in explaining how desires provide  
reasons for action.
