dc.description.abstractIn this project I argue that, as agents, we have a normative commitment to avoid incoherent combinations of attitudes. To this end, I defend an amended version of Alex Worsnip’s (2020) position on normative requirements of structural rationality. After offering a more uniform account of coherence requirements for Worsnip’s project, I argue against several problem cases thought to prevent the normativity of these requirements. Finally, I advocate to recast Worsnip’s project within a constitutivist account of agency and self- governance. I argue that doing so provides the necessary framework to explain sufficiently why agents are rationally bound to normative coherence requirements.en_US
