What Carroll's tortoise actually proves

Jan Willem Wieland UGent (2013) ETHICAL THEORY AND MORAL PRACTICE. 16(5). p.983-997
abstract
Rationality requires us to have certain propositional attitudes (beliefs, intentions, etc.) given certain other attitudes that we have. Carroll's Tortoise repeatedly shows up in this discussion. Following up on Brunero (2005, this journal), I ask what Carroll-style considerations actually prove. This paper rejects two existing suggestions, and defends a third.
