But, for Anscombe, non-observational knowledge is not something ‘exercised’ to tell us what we are doing; it is rather present as intentional action. That the intentional action coincides with our non-observational knowledge is, in all cases, a tautological truth. Her problem in accommodating Davidson’s example does not reﬂect ﬂaws in her account of non-observational knowledge; rather it is a feature of Anscombe’s too restrictive position on intentional action, one that ties it to (motivational) reason only.
This is wrongheaded on three counts: there is no such state of mind; our actions are not such atomistic events; and actions are not apart from the substance of our ‘inner’ abilities, whatever these are. Statements like, ‘the defendant intended to kill the victim’, are best seen as constructions (although not necessarily good ones) based on what an actor is responsible for; on those actions that we believe are attributable to her. Whilst it is worth identifying the artiﬁciality involved in our constructions, to do so is not to be critical of construction as such.
My doing is my knowing; nothing ‘exists’ either apart from the action or within me. , 52. Davidson’s justiﬁable scepticism about the possibility of deﬁning intention might have led him to suspect that intention is less ‘real’ than many have taken it to be but he is both seduced and perplexed by pure intention. His difﬁculty is really in setting out to explain something that is not ‘there’ to be explained. Consider his explanation for an example of pure intention; writing the word ‘action’: ‘Some temporal segments of this action are themselves actions: for example, ﬁrst I write the letter ‘a’.
