Acting from a desire to eat amounts, in my terms, to acting in the way to which one is rationally committed by having the belief that one would enjoy eating and by one's other beliefs about the state of the food-providing world. To be sure, this is not the sort of commitment that takes a heroic effort to live up to, but I do not mean to suggest by "commitment" something necessarily opposed to inclination. Indeed, pre34 PRACTICAL RATIONALITY AND COMMITMENT cisely because I want to include within this explanatory framework inclinations to bring about envisaged states of affairs, it is important that it should not be so opposed.
Epistemic action commitments may well derive from two conditions of human life: (1) the propensity of human beings, as rational creatures, to seek to have true beliefs, that is, from their 'truthcentered motives,' and (2) the social character of the quest for truth, which uses the resources of language. These conditions together would explain why a commitment to saying what one really believes is one of the constituents of rational epistemic and linguistic practice. Typically, human beings are conscious and purposive manipulators of their world.
Indeed, pre34 PRACTICAL RATIONALITY AND COMMITMENT cisely because I want to include within this explanatory framework inclinations to bring about envisaged states of affairs, it is important that it should not be so opposed. An action commitment is a course of action appropriate to belief, and seeking food to eat is standardly appropriate when one believes that one is hungry. One can be wrong about that, of course; one may have misinterpreted the somatic cue, as when someone feels hungry when the real trouble is a peptic ulcer.
