Mellon, em Evans The Varieties of Reference

Modern philosophy finds it difficult to give a satisfactory picture of the place of minds in the world. In Mind and World , based on the John Locke Lectures, one of the most distinguished philosophers writing today offers his diagnosis of this difficulty and points to a cure. In doing so, he delivers the most complete and ambitious statement to date of his own views, a statement that no one concerned with the future of philosophy can afford to ignore. John McDowell amply illustrates a major problem of modern philosophy—the insidious persistence of dualism—in his discussion of empirical thought.

John McDowell on Worldly Subjectivity

How do concepts mediate the relation between minds and the world? This is the main topic of John McDowell's Mind and World where McDowell attempts to dissolve a number of dualisms making use of a particular philosophical methodology which I identify as a version of Wittgenstein's quietism. This thesis consists of a critical analysis of a number of dualisms which McDowell attempts to dissolve in Mind and World These include the Kantian dualism of sensibility and understanding, the dualism of conceptual versus non conceptual content, the dualism of scheme and content and the dualism of reason and nature. These dichotomies are all intricately intertwined and can be seen to be subsumed by the main topic of this thesis, namely, thinking and the world. McDowell persuasively draws attention to the unsustainability of particular philosophical positions between which philosophers have 'oscillated' such as coherentism and the given.

John McDowell's new conceptual intuitions. Universum [online]. ISSN In this paper I will contrast the standard conceptualist account that McDowell put forward in Mind and World with his current conceptualist theory that distinguishes between two kinds of content: the non-propositional intuitive content of perceptual experiences and the discursive propositional content of our empirical beliefs. I will argue that, even though McDowell characterizes both theories as "conceptualist", in fact his current proposal is conceptual in a less demanding sense than the previous one, because it lacks the ontological commitments that the classic version of Mind and World had regarding the constituents of the contents of perception. The variety of conceptualism regarding the content of perception that McDowell nowadays supports would even admit the presence of some non-conceptual constitutive features. Keywords : McDowell; conceptualism; perception; intuitive content; propositional content.

These two collections of essays bring us up to date on John McDowell's philosophical production since Mind and World. The volumes exhibit great range, as one would expect with McDowell. In this review, it is impossible to summarize each of the 33 essays. Instead, I will selectively highlight essays in The Engaged Intellect , but focus on one thread that ties Having the World in View into a more unified volume. The volume's title seems a little odd -- under such a title one would normally expect to find someone dealing with issues of contemporary social and political concern, and there is none of that here, though perhaps I've read too much Sartre.

McDowell, John - Mind and World

Подойдя вплотную, незнакомец буквально пронзил ее взглядом. - Кто это? - спросил. - Сьюзан Флетчер, - ответил Бринкерхофф.

Беккера поразила ее реакция. - Сьюзан, не знал, что ты… - Это из сатир Ювенала! - воскликнула.  - Кто будет охранять охранников. Иными словами - кто будет охранять Агентство национальной безопасности, пока мы охраняем мир. Это было любимое изречение, которым часто пользовался Танкадо. - И что же, - спросила Мидж, - это и есть искомый ключ. - Наверняка, - объявил Бринкерхофф.

Его концепция была столь же проста, сколь и гениальна.

Мне нужно поработать. У Мидж отвисла челюсть. - Извините, сэр… Бринкерхофф уже шел к двери, но Мидж точно прилипла к месту. - Я с вами попрощался, мисс Милкен, - холодно сказал Фонтейн.

Он готов был спорить на что угодно, хоть на собственную жизнь, потому что ясно представлял себе весь сценарий. Этот звонок будет для Хейла полной неожиданностью. Он запаникует и в конце концов, столкнувшись с группой вооруженных людей, ничего не сможет поделать. После минутного упорства ему придется уступить. Но если я вызову агентов безопасности, весь мой план рухнет, - подумал .

Кто будет охранять охранников.

    Although he has written on metaphysics , epistemology , ancient philosophy , and meta-ethics , McDowell's most influential work has been in the philosophy of mind and philosophy of language.
