and Intelligent Action

In this paper we explore the following "Kantian" question: How is intelligent action possible? Our goal is to provide a certain kind of intellectualist answer. In the first part, we will develop a framework for understanding this question in a relatively precise way. In the second part, we provide an account based on our theory of knowledge how which accounts for intelligent action in terms of the nature of an individual's grasp of relevant concepts.
