Editorial Reviews

Review

"[The Dreyfus/McDowell debate] … taps into deep questions about action, agency and reason, and one of the pleasures of Schear's book is the breadth and depth it brings to the discussion. With the debate as the focal (or jumping off) point, the contributors explore the historical and large-scale philosophical context, the nature of embodied skill, perceptual content, conceptuality, and rationality. As a whole the book provides a rich and nuanced investigation of the issues in dispute." - Wayne Christensen, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

"The exchange some years ago between John McDowell and Bert Dreyfus raised fundamental questions about the nature of embodied cognition and, in particular, the role of concepts in human perception. This volume makes available their strikingly yet subtly opposing positions in the opening section so as to mobilize a great deal of very interesting reflection in the essays that follow - with a fascinating sketch of the historical and conceptual background to these issues provided by Charles Taylor in the opening commentary. This is Anglo-American philosophy at its most worthwhile, maintaining its sense of rigour and argument while also reaching to be continuous with the large and important philosophical themes to be found in other traditions of Philosophy." - Akeel Bilgrami, Columbia University, USA

"Starting with new papers by McDowell and Dreyfus reformulating their dispute about rationality and encountering the world, Joseph Schear has collected a series of new, very high quality, responses to the debate, from a range of distinguished thinkers. Working through them one encounters philosophical argument that inspires, illuminates, and raises even more questions. The collection is essential reading for anyone thinking about these fundamental issues." - Paul Snowdon, University College London, UK 

"Joseph Schear provides us with a much-needed compilation of this whole 'battle of myths' that began when Hubert Dreyfus presented a challenge to John McDowell’s theory of perception with his 2005 Presidential Address to the American Philosophical Association." - Eric. J. Mohr, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Difficult but a few real gems including the easier to read penultimate essay by a ballerina, if that's the correct name.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Designated as a reading circle title, this overview of Dreyfus and McDowell brings us into the new century. I am a Heideggerian and Merleau-Ponty disciple, especially their respective LATER works. One first impression that I have is the density of prose complicates the reading experience. Both authors mentioned above pared down their words by using active
images and shorter sentences. Both accepted the Da-sein milieu while McDowell appears to reject it. But I have more to read as yet.
