The Constitution of Action 

Simon Evnine

Abstract

 

I shall outline a theory of constitution for material objects designed to explain how constitution applies in the case of artifacts (e.g. how a statue is constituted by some clay). I shall then argue that intentional actions are constituted in this way. As a consequence, we should see intentional actions as artifacts. They are artifactual events in the way that statues are artifactual objects.
