Subjective, Intersubjective, Objective is the long-awaited third volume of philosophical writings by Donald Davidson, whose influence on philosophy since the 1960s has been deep and broad. His first two collections, published by OUP in the early 1980s, are recognized as contemporary classics. Now Davidson presents a selection of his work on knowledge, mind, and language from the 1980s and the 1990s. We all have knowledge of our own minds, knowledge of the contents of other minds, and knowledge of the shared environment. Davidson examines the nature and status of each of these threesorts of knowledge, and the connections and differences among them.

Editorial Reviews

`Review from other book by this author 'There is no more creative or systematic philosopher at work in America today than Donald Davidson... Davidson has already constructed one of the most remarkable pillars of sustained philosophical reasoning to be found in any era.''Ian Hacking, New York Review of Books
