Action Theory, Rationality and Compulsion

Lennart Nordenfelt

International Perspectives in Philosophy and Psychiatry

This book presents a unique examination of mental illness. Though common to many mental disorders, delusions result in actions that, though perhaps rational to the individual, might seem entirely inappropriate or harmful to others. This book shows how we may better understand delusion by examining the nature of compulsion.
