Practical Induction by Elijah Millgram
Book DescriptionPractical reasoning is not just a matter of determining how to get what you want, but also how to work out want it is you want in the first place. This book argues that experience plays a central role in this process, and rejects the idea of instrumentalism, a view predominant among philosophers today. This idea holds that the goals of practical reasoning are basic in the sense that they are given by desires that are not themselves the product of practical reasoning. The book defends the "practical induction" view, a method of reasoning from experiences similar to theoretical induction.

Milgram's innovative book challenges us to face this dilemma squarely. " Mark Wilson, Univeristy of Pittsburgh "A fine book: ambitious, provocative, and engaging.
