Overview

Written by a distinguished roster of philosophers, this volume includes chapters on truth and meaning; the philosophy of action; radical interpretation; philosophical psychology; knowledge of the external world; other minds and our own minds; and the implications of Davidson's work for literary theory. Donald Davidson has been one of the most influential figures in modern analytic philosophy and has made significant contributions to a wide range of subjects. Embodied in a series of landmark essays stretching over nearly 40 years, his principal work exhibits a unity rare among philosophers contributing on so many diverse fronts. Kirk Ludwig, the recipient of two grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, has taught at the University of Florida's Department of Philosophy since 1995. His areas of research specialization include philosophy of language, epistemology, and philosophy of mind. He has contributed chapters to a number of volumes on these topics as well as published articles in Philosophical Quarterly, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, Mind and Language, and elsewhere.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...the collection gives a very good sense of Davidson's unitary position on an impressively large array of issues, and provides a vivid picture of both the breadth and depth of Davidson's integrated system of views." Philosophy in Review

"...a first-rate introduction to Davidson's philosophy which will be most beneficial to students. The book is sufficiently accessible for undergraduates to digest but will also interest graduate students and those with a professional interest in Davidson's philosophy." Metapsychology
