This chapter distinguishes reasons and concepts from which these are often confused, such as motives and desires. It distinguishes between objective reasons and personal reasons, and between the justifying force of a reason and its requiring force. It provides an account of the kinds of facts and beliefs that can count as reasons, and clarifies the distinction between being an adequate reason and being no reason at all.

Keywords:   reasons, motives, desires, objective reasons, personal reasons, justifying force, requiring force, adequate reasons
