McNaughton and Rawling present a view on which practical reasons are facts, such as the fact that the rubbish bin is full. This is a non-normative fact, but it is a reason for you to do something, namely take the rubbish out.

They see rationality as a matter of consistency (failing to notice that the rubbish bin is full need not be a rational failure). An unconditional practical reason is one that can be seen to be a reason for action by any rational audience; its appeal relies on no parochial concerns.

Such universal appeal is captured by the categorical imperative test (O'Neill examines in detail three of the formulations of this): only principles of action that pass this test can be universally recognized as yielding practical : Onora O'neill.

This article presents a view on which practical reasons are facts, such as the fact that the rubbish bin is full. This is a non-normative fact, but it is a reason for one to do something, namely take the rubbish out.

This article sees rationality as a matter of consistency (failing to notice that the rubbish bin is full need not be a rational failure). This article examines three competing views entertained by economic theory about the instrumental rationality of decisions. The first says to maximize self-interest, the second to maximize utility, and the third to “satisfice,” that is, to adopt a satisfactory option.

Critics argue that the first view is too narrow, that the second overlooks the benefits of teamwork and planning, and that.

By carefully delineating the existential and cultural limits of economic rationality, he emphasizes the urgent need to create a society which rejects the work. Young advances his own notion of economic rationality, then seeks to establish rules by which rational economic players can jointly create a common base for business negotiation.

The results of bargaining will then be in equilibrium, and a solution optimal to both sides can be by: 5. The subject is not only situated, embedded, within a specific context but is also a corporeal, embodied subject. An embodied rationality recognizes that rationality and the knowledge that it informs cannot be divorced from the physical reality of the individual who reasons.

An embodied rationality encompasses three dimensions: the body, the emotions, and the ‘irrational’ unconscious.
