What makes an occasion count number as an motion? ordinary solutions attract the best way the development was once produced: e.g., possibly an arm circulate is an motion while as a result of psychological states (in specific ways), yet no longer whilst triggered in alternative ways. Andrew Sneddon argues that this kind of resolution, which he calls 'productionism', is methodologically and considerably incorrect. particularly, productionist solutions to this query are typically both individualistic or foundationalist, or either, with no specific defence. in its place, Sneddon bargains 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 least partially constitutive of occasions as actions.
