What makes an occasion count number as an motion? standard solutions attract the way the development used to be produced: e.g., possibly an arm flow is an motion while attributable to psychological states (in specific ways), yet no longer whilst triggered in alternative routes. Andrew Sneddon argues that this kind of solution, which he calls 'productionism', is methodologically and considerably flawed. specifically, productionist solutions to this question are typically both individualistic or foundationalist, or either, with out specific defence. as a substitute, 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 no less than partially constitutive of occasions as actions.
