Title: The Structure of Reasons: Subtraction and Partiality
Abstract: 

Practical reasons are central both in everyday normative reasoning and in normative theorizing, but most accounts treat them as atomic and flat. 

In this talk, I investigate the structure of practical reasons in order to deal with aggregation, double counting, subtraction, and partiality. The aim is to give a unified formal account which is able to serve as a semantic backdrop to construct natural logical systems to reason with reasons, based on a hyperintensional justification logic with a novel truthmaker semantics.
