Hello, dear philosophers! Are there any norms of practical reasoning in much the same way that there are in theoretical reasoning? In the latter case, I am thinking of such rules of inference as modus ponens and modus tollens and the avoidance of logical fallacies. If there are many similarities between theoretical and practical reasoning, it seems reasonable to suppose that there would be norms in both kinds of reasoning. But to my knowledge, I did not find any norms in practical reasoning. Or perhaps it might be the case that the same norms apply to theoretical as well as practical reasoning. But if that is the case, why is it that people make decisions about what to do without being aware of such logical rules and even violating some of them in the course of the performance of their desired action, which leads to the idea that perhaps the norms between those two kinds of reasoning may actually be different. Thank you!
