I’m reading Terry Pinkard’s “German Philosophy 1760-1860 The Legacy of Idealism”, and on page 113, he writes:
“Signing a check, hitting a home run, making an assertion, shopping at a sale are all other examples of normative activities that cannot be captured in a purely physical or “naturalistic description of them.”
I’m not getting why hitting a home rim cannot be described as purely physical phenomena.
Can somebody explain it to me?
