Human agents possess normative capacities – capacities to act and believe in response to normative considerations. The project of understanding what the possession and exercise of these capacities amounts to faces a number of challenges and questions situated in the overlap between metaethics, the theory of action, and the metaphysics of abilities: What is it to act or believe for a reason? What type of control is involved in exercising normative capacities? What are the implications of our understanding of normative capacities for the so-called basing relation and the relation between normative and motivating reasons? How is exercising normative capacities tied to normative success and error?

Please submit an abstract suitable for a 30–40 minutes presentation as a PDF file to human-abilities@hu-berlin.de, using the subject line Normative Capacities Workshop. The abstract should be prepared for blind review and be 500-1000 words in length, including all notes (but not references). The deadline is April 8th, and authors of accepted papers will be notified by May 16th.
