This paper uses the “planning” or “narrative” approach to agency – which has recently been developed by philosophers Bratman, Gauthier, McClennen and Velleman – to do two things. First, the paper criticises the standard, decision‐theoretic view of “rational” agent action and, second, it sketches a positive model of agency in which agents employ (quasi‐)Kantian maxims to guide their conduct.
