By Andrew Sneddon

What makes an occasion count number as an motion? standard solutions entice the best way the development used to be produced: e.g., maybe an arm flow is an motion whilst brought on by psychological states (in specific ways), yet no longer whilst brought on in alternative ways. Andrew Sneddon argues that this kind of resolution, which he calls 'productionism', is methodologically and considerably flawed. particularly, productionist solutions to this query are usually both individualistic or foundationalist, or either, with no particular defence. as a substitute, Sneddon deals an externalist, anti-foundationalist account of what makes an occasion count number as an motion, which he calls neo-ascriptivism, after the paintings of H.L.A. Hart. particularly, Sneddon argues that our practices of attributing ethical accountability to one another are at the very least in part constitutive of occasions as actions.
