John McDowell ist einer der einflussreichsten Philosophen der Gegenwart. Wenige philosophische Werke der letzten dreißig Jahre haben eine derart breite und weltweit geführte Diskussion ausgelöst wie seine John-Locke-Lectures, die 1994 unter dem Titel Mind and World veröffentlicht wurden. Zudem ist McDowell als Autor einer Vielzahl von Aufsätzen bekannt, die in den jeweiligen Themengebieten als Klassiker gelten. In diesem Buch wird die Philosophie John McDowells zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache in Form eines Handbuchs umfassend dargelegt. Die einzelnen Beiträge gehen hierbei über die bloße Einführung hinaus und zeichnen auf der Höhe der gegenwärtigen Forschung die intensive Debatte um McDowells Werk nach, das dabei zugleich einer kritischen Prüfung unterzogen wird. Das Handbuch ist in drei Teile untergliedert: Der erste Teil umfasst acht Beiträge, die sich den Kernthemen von McDowells Philosophie zuwenden. Teil zwei widmet sich in fünf Kapiteln McDowells Anschlüssen an die Philosophen Aristoteles, Kant, Frege, Wittgenstein und Davidson. Schließlich wird McDowells Denken im dritten Teil in die Traditionen der hermeneutischen, der phänomenologischen und der klassischen deutschen Philosophie eingeordnet und aus deren Perspektiven auf Anschlussmöglichkeiten hin untersucht.

1 Introduction John McDowell has recently claimed that his account of perceptual intentionality offers material for a transcendental argument directed against the classical sceptic about our knowledge of the external world (McDowell 2008). Such a sceptic bases a global scepticism about our

1. Introduction In a series of recent articles, Duncan Pritchard (2007, 2008, 2009) has attempted to defend John McDowell’s anti-sceptical strategy (adumbrated, for example, in McDowell 1994 , 1998b, 1998c, 1998d, and, most recently, in 2009) against a number of influential criticisms, most

Jan Almäng believes that James J. Gibson’s notion of affordances offers a reason to reject John McDowell’s thesis that representational perceptual content is conceptual through and through. I argue that Almäng’s arguments for the claim that the perceptual content in which conditional affordances feature can be both representational and non-conceptual are questionable.

Edmund Husserl’s account of the horizonal character of simple, sensuous perception provides a sophisticated account of perceptual intentional content which enables plausible responses to key issues in the philosophy of perception and in Heidegger interpretation. Section 2 outlines Husserl’s account of intentionality in its application to such perceptual experience. Section 3 then elaborates the notion of perceptual horizon in order to draw out, in Section 4, its implications for four issues: firstly, the relation between the object perceived and perceptual appearance (qua item “in consciousness”); secondly, the relation between the subject perceiving and perceptual appearance; thirdly, what sense of the body is inherent to perceptual experience of the horizonal kind; and fourthly, what John McDowell is getting at when he claims that traditional conceptions fail to capture how perception puts us in cognitive contact with the world. The paper concludes by using the interpretation developed to show how Husserl’s account of perceptual experience as horizonal enables one to draw out the sense and worth of what Heidegger means by worldliness and the “Da” of Dasein.

, for it remains possible that I am at the mercy of such a demon, and this occasion is one of those on which he is leaving me unmolested. John McDowell (2009: 228) claims that his epistemological disjunctivism allows us to mount a response to “scepticism about perceptually acquired knowledge of the

the uncodifiability thesis. 21 Personally I agree more with John McDowell’s stronger statement that “If the question ‘How should one live’ could be given a direct answer in Universal terms, the concept of virtue would have only a secondary place in moral philosophy” . 22 In any case, virtue ethics

. John McDowell (1995, 878) writes that “anyone who knows the dreary history of epistemology knows this hope is rather faint”. But I think the situation is in fact much worse for the classical internalist. It’s not as though they might have some hope, which for inductive reasons is rather faint
