A distinctive part of our everyday adult way of making sense of one another
involves making sense of actions performed for reasons, This practice,
which has been the focus of intense scrutiny, frequently dons the somewhat
unfortunate label 'Folk Psychology' (or FP) in the philosophical literature'.
It travels under many other names too: common-sense psychology; naive
psychology; Homo sapiens psychology; the person theory of humans; belief/
desire psychology - to name but a few.
