Reasons and rationality

Nyholm, Sven (2003)
Practical Philosophy
Abstract
The questions that I will be discussing are:

Q1: What is the relation (and difference) between normative reasons and motivating (and/or explanatory) reasons?

and

Q2: When are, or in virtue of what are, acts, desires or beliefs rational (or irrational)?

Because the two subjects that I will discuss - reasons and rationality - are so closely related, I don't think that one can discuss one without mentioning the other. I shall,

however, have more to say about Q1. Questions about reasons are, I believe, more fundamental than questions about rationality.
