Description

McDowell builds on his much discussed Mind and World. He argues that the roots of some problems plaguing contemporary philosophy can be found in issues that were first discerned by Kant, and that the best way to get a handle on them is to follow those issues as they are reshaped in the writings of Hegel and Sellars. This new book will be a decisive further step toward healing the divisions in contemporary philosophy.

Review quote

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)
