Nomy Arpaly rejects the model of rationality used by most ethicists and action theorists.

By questioning the notion that our own minds are comprehensible to us--and therefore questioning much of the current work of action theorists and ethicists--Arpaly attempts to develop a more realistic conception of moral agency.
