Abstract

Abstract:

Offered here is a critique of Hayashi's (2016) account of the Buddhist view of persons as emergent epiphenomena. It is argued that ethical agency is an ineliminable part of a fundamental action-theoretic ontology of our normative moral practices. So, if ethical agency grounds our moral practices and persons ground ethical agency, an account of persons as non-epiphenomenal emergents is required.
