Ideas of Michael Bratman, by Text

[American, b.1945, Professor at Stanford University.]

1987 Intention, Plans, and Practical Reason
p.9 Intention is either the aim of an action, or a long-term constraint on what we can do [Wilson/Schpall]
p.13 Bratman rejected reducing intentions to belief-desire, because they motivate, and have their own standards [Wilson/Schpall]
p.14 Intentions are normative, requiring commitment and further plans [Wilson/Schpall]
p.14 Intentions must be mutually consistent, affirm appropriate means, and fit the agent's beliefs [Wilson/Schpall]
