|Title:||Desire, Rationality, and the Forsaken Imagination|
|Abstract:||In my thesis, I investigate how we are able to do what we think we ought to do. I use results from neuroscience to support the view that an agent will most likely perform whichever prospective action is most salient in her mind's eye. Ultimately, I weigh the merits of two distinct techniques for bringing one's actions in line with her beliefs about what would be best for her to do.|
