Description

This is a systematic introduction to the work of American philosopher Donald Davidson - beginning with his contributions to the philosophy of mind, including his views on action, events and causation. The author then examines Davidson's work in the philosophy of language, considering in detail the link between meaning and truth, and problems of radical interpretation and translation. The final chapters deal with the metaphysical aspects of his work and offer an assessment of his philosophical project as a whole.show more
