The notion of commitment has been applied widely in our theorizing of action (joint action, speech acts, reasons for acting). But what exactly are commitments? This question has not been fully discussed in the literature. This makes commitment accounts difficult to assess. In my talk, I will give an account of what commitments are. I will respond to previous analyses in the literature (Gilbert, Bratman) and discuss Bart Geurts’ recent account.

Abstract: What are commitments?

The notion of commitment has been applied widely in our
theorizing of action (joint action, speech acts, reasons for acting).
But what exactly are commitments? This question has not been fully
discussed in the literature. This makes commitment accounts difficult to
assess. In my talk, I will give an account of what commitments are. I
will respond to previous analyses in the literature (Gilbert, Bratman)
and discuss Bart Geurts’ recent account.
