Practical inference: practical conclusions go from an idea, a wish, or a statement, and lead to an intention of action. Practical conclusions lead to a weaker justification than extended normative conclusions. (See C. Beisbart, “Handeln Begründen, Motivation, Rationalität, Normativität“, Münster, 2007, p. 223).
