[catalogued under 20. Action / C. Motives for Action / 2. Acting on Beliefs / b. Action cognitivism]

Full Idea

Maybe there is a class of beliefs that plays a special role in the explanation of action. We have argued against the existence of such a class (or at least any interesting such class).

Gist of Idea

We deny that action involves some special class of beliefs

A Reaction

The main class which has been proposed is the one that involves indexical beliefs. I agree with this idea.
