Reviews

As rich in ideas as philosophy today ever is. I know of no contemporary philosopher whose work repays as handsomely careful and repeated study, no philosopher more likely to shed original and yet fundamentally revealing light on a difficult subject, no philosopher whose 'philosophical ear' or 'philosophical sense' is more worthy of respect.-- (08/12/2009)
[These essays] provide the rare and instructive spectacle of a philosopher who is able to genuinely enrich our understanding of the history of philosophy while at the same time engaging in current philosophical problems and debates.--Courtney D. Fugate"Philosophy in Review" (05/01/2012)
This volume showcases McDowell's remarkable mastery of a wide range of philosophical subject matter, containing essays that treat Plato, Aristotle, Frege, Wittgenstein, Gadamer, Merleau-Ponty, P.F. Strawson, and many other philosophers. It ranges over philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, and epistemology... He extends our conception of what might be possible and desirable in a naturalistic account of the mind. McDowell's account promises a more authentic way of retaining our responsiveness to reasons than any other account on offer in contemporary philosophy.-- (11/03/2009)
