*Productive Practical Knowledge*

Rowland Stout (UCD)

Date: 7 August
Time: 13:00-14:00
Venue: Blackshield Room, W3A (6 First Walk) 501*
All welcome

Abstract:  Anscombe thought that your knowledge of what you are doing was
special in two ways: (i) it is non-observational; (ii) it is productive of
its object ("the cause of what it understands").  Most, even quite
sympathetic, commentators think this can't be quite right.  But I defend
the position by (i) articulating a conception of knowledge as rational
sensitivity and (ii) articulating a conception of practical reasoning
within the course of an action where the fact that one is doing what one is
doing is a reason for doing the things that eventually mean one is doing
the action.
