The Aristotelian Society presents:

Professor Kieran Setiya (University of Pittsburgh)  – Knowing How

I argue from the possibility of basic intentional action to a non-propositional theory of knowing how. The argument supports a broadly Anscombean conception of the will as a capacity for practical knowledge.

Kieran Setiya was an undergraduate at Cambridge and a graduate student at Princeton. He is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh, and is the author of Reasons without Rationalism (Princeton, 2007) and Knowing Right From Wrong (Oxford, forthcoming).
