Books By Author S. L. Hurley

Consciousness in Action by S. L. Hurley Consciousness in Action, Paperback (May 2002)

In this text, Susan Hurley sheds light on consciousness by examining its relationships to action from various angles. She asseses the role of agency in the unity of a conscious perspective, and argues that perception and action are more deeply interdependent than is often assumed.

Natural Reasons by S. L. Hurley Natural Reasons, Paperback (November 1992)

Illustrating the continuity of the philosophy of mind with ethics and jurisprudence, this monograph is concerned with the rationality of decisions and actions. It brings Wittgenstein's and Davidson's arguments about interpretation to bear on decision and social choice theory.
