On Thinking and the World synopsis
Since his publication in 1994, Mindwell and John McDowell have become a basic text, with many new ideas on how to mediate concepts in the relationship between minds and the world. But McDowell's ideas are not easy to understand. In this book, Sandra Dingley elaborates and simplifies McDowell's ideas in order to give them more clarity and help to understand and appreciate his work.
Dingley chooses five contemporary philosophical themes that McDowell deals with, elaborates on the implications of particular perspectives, analyzes current literature on each topic, and abstracts the shortcomings and possibilities to overcome them. This work, then, is a critique and a complement to McDowell's text.
Project McDowell is to solve a number of diodes such as sensitivity and understanding, conceptual and non-intellectual content, schema, content, mind and nature. Dingley decisively analyzes each of these claims and claims that a correct understanding of the philosophical method of calm is important for a proper understanding of this text, and concludes that McDowell does not go far enough in his attempt to achieve philosophy as traditional binaries such as those of realism and anti-realism are still clinging to His thinking..
