This collection of essays by one of the most prominent and internationally respected philosophers of action theory is concerned with deepening our understanding of the notion of intention. In Bratman's view, when we settle on a plan for action we are committing ourselves to future conduct in ways that help support important forms of coordination and organization both within the life of the agent and interpersonally. These essays enrich that account of commitment involved in intending, and explore its implications for our understanding of temptation and self-control, shared intention and shared cooperative activity, and moral responsibility. The essays offer extensive discussions of related views by, among others, Donald Davidson, Hector-Neri Castaneda, Christine Korsgaard, Harry Frankfurt, and P. F. Strawson. This collection will be a valuable resource for a wide range of philosophers and their students.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is an excellent collection of essays. It is clearly written and presents complex arguments in an accessible and persuasive manner. Bratman's work has consistently been of the highest calibre: Faces of Intention is no exception.' The Cambridge Law Journal
" Faces of Intention is a fine collection of essays covering Michael Bratman's work on intention and agency between 1992 and 1998, along with four critical reviews published between 1983 and 1998." Dialogue 40/2
"Michael Bratman's new book is a very good piece of work. Clearly written, philosophically sophisticated, and admirably fair to contrary points of view, it is worthy of both attentive study and careful critique." Philosophy and Phenomenological
