K. Glüer, Davidson zur Einführung, 1993
Glüer II 84
Action Theory/Practical Syllogism/Davidson/Glüer: Aristotle: conclusion is itself the direct action - E.g. if I eat the chocolate because I have reasons, then the reason is the cause - Cause = reason (in the practical syllogism) - WittgensteinVsDavidson: (Blue Book, p 35): statements about causes are empirical (nomological) - but that does not apply to specifying your own reasons for action - cause / Wittgenstein: is anybody's guess - reasons / motive / Wittgenstein: to know - (from language skills) - on the other hand: "can" / Wittgenstein: refers to logical possibility - II 85 Conclusion: reason and action are not separate.
