Summary

John McDowell and Hubert Dreyfus are philosophers of world renown whose work has done much to shape the fields of analytic philosophy and phenomenology respectively. Mind, Reason and Being-in-the-World: The McDowell-Dreyfus Debate opens with their debate over one of the most important and controversial subjects in philosophy: is perceptual experience permeated with rationality and reflectiveness, or is perception fundamentally unreflective and bodily; something prior to rationality? They provide a fascinating insight into some fundamental differences between analytic philosophy and phenomenology as well as areas where they may have something in common.14 specially commissioned chapters by distinguished international contributors enrich the debate inaugurated by McDowell and Dreyfus, taking it in a number of different and important directions. Fundamental philosophical problems discussed include: the embodied mind, subjectivity and self-consciousness, intentionality, rationality, and human agency. With the addition of these outstanding contributions, Mind, Reason and Being-in-the-World should be considered essential reading for students and scholars of analytic philosophy and phenomenology.
