Sample text

Because F3 holds for belief it follows that a also believes that he should bring q about. It may be said here that p is a reason which a has for believing that he should bring q about. And when a has some reason for believing that he should bring it about that q it is the case that (16) a intends to bring it about that q. However, the applicability of a norm is one thing, its application another. It is the idea of application which must be elucidated if the action-guiding function of norms is to be understood.

See esp. ) From our point of view this theoretical Simplification, which seems desirable, may naturally be articulated as follows. Just as a norm correlates a normative position and a condition, so an attitude may be said to correlate a value pOSition and a condition. Thus, if we interpret Tq(x) of (2) as the expression of a value position~ (2) may be taken INTENTIONS AND REASONS 41 as the most general form of formulations or statements of attitudes, while (3) and (4) are slightly simpler forms of attitude statements.

For example, from the alphabet 1=(0,1) the words 0,1,00,01,10,11,000, ... can be formed. Thus a wordp over 1 exhibits a first position, a second position, and so on, up to an nth position. Here the integer n is a measure of the length /g(p) of p and it is equal to the number of occurrences of letters of 1 in p. e. the empty sequence over an alphabet, is called the empty word and written X. If p and q are words over I of lengths m and n, respectively, then their catenation pq is a word over I of length m + n.
