He argues that we play ourselves-not artificially but authentically, by doing what would make sense coming from us as we really are. And like improvisational actors, we deal with one another in dual capacities: both as characters within the social drama and as players contributing to the shared performance. In this conception of social intercourse, Velleman finds rational grounds for morality, though not a rational guarantee. He maps a middle course between skepticism and rationalism, arguing that practical reasoning is pro-moral'' without requiring moral action. The result is what he calls a Kinda Kantian metaethics. Written in an accessible and engaging style, How We Get Along is the summation of Velleman''s thinking to date, incorporating and unifying previous work on agency, the self, the emotions, narrative, and Kantian moral theory.
