Abstract

Stit semantics gives an account of action from a certain perspective: actions are seen not as operations performed in action systems and yielding new states of affairs, but rather as selections of preexistent trajectories of the system in time. Main problems of stit semantics are recapitulated. The interrelations between stit semantics and the approach based on ordered action systems are discussed more fully.

Notes

  1. 1.
