Commitment and Goals
In this Comment, I examine Christoph Hanisch's recent contribution to this journal. In commenting on Hanisch's essay, I offer an interpretation of Amartya Sen's notion of `commitment' which makes committed choices both uncontroversial and quotidian. This interpretation contrasts with those which see some of Sen's pronouncements on commitment to be obviously false, counterintuitive or psychologically impossible.
