John McDowell’s work has had an immense and lasting influence on philosophical thought. This volume contains newly commissioned papers by distinguished philosophers on McDowell’s work, along with substantial replies to each by McDowell himself. The essays cover the full range of McDowell’s seminal contributions in philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, ancient philosophy, moral philosophy, and epistemology. Together, they offer by far the most comprehensive discussion of his work currently available.

Contributors are: Akeel Bilgrami, Simon Blackburn, Jonathan Dancy, Richard G. Heck, Jr., T. H. Irwin, Cynthia Macdonald, Graham Macdonald, Philip Pettit, Carol Rovane, R. M. Sainsbury, and Michael Smith.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an excellent collection of essays on the wide-ranging work of one of the most significant and original philosophers of our day. They raise some fundamental questions about McDowell's views on a variety of topics, to which his own exemplary responses provide extremely valuable further elaboration and development of his thought." Bill Brewer, University of Warwick

"A very welcome addition to the ‘Philosophers and their Critics’ series: there is much to be learnt from the interplay between the ten contributors’ probing papers and McDowell’s responses to them." Jennifer Hornsby, Birkbeck College
