Adopting a Point of View

This chapter differentiates between a Kantian, teleological way of adopting a point of view and a Humean, non-causal way to do so. After analyzing the pros and cons of both positions, a re-worked and more substantial behaviorist dispositional option is emphasized. The main reason is that, against positions that follow a certain kind of principle in order to adopt a point of view or merely referring to expressivist agreement in attitudes, Modal Perspectivism encourages the adoption of points of view via identifying them with their own coherence, consistency, and explanatory scope.
