Ideas of Michael Bratman, by Text

[American, b.1945, Professor at Stanford University.]

1987 Intention, Plans, and Practical Reason
p.9 Intention is either the aim of an action, or a long-term constraint on what we can do
p.13 Bratman rejected reducing intentions to belief-desire, because they motivate, and have their own standards
p.14 Intentions must be mutually consistent, affirm appropriate means, and fit the agent's beliefs
p.14 Intentions are normative, requiring commitment and further plans
