Summary note
By developing a new theory of reasons for action, Daniel Whiting addresses key debates in metaethics (concerning normative reasons) and epistemology (concerning the norms for belief). He offers a comprehensive account of the various norms governing belief, the relations among them, and the unifying principle that underlies them all.
