Collectivity and Circularity

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/Conference proceedingKapitel samlingsverk


The common claim that the notion of collective action must figure in the content of the attitudes of the parties to a collective action gives rise to a circularity challenge. Standard responses to this challenge are criticized. This article’s solution exploits a notion of collectivity that does not presuppose intention: a purely causal conception that can be explicated in terms of dispositions and causal agency. Participants in a jointly intentional collective action do not need to possess a stronger notion of collectivity than this. In particular, they do not need to possess the concept of a jointly intentional collective action.
