Ideas of John McDowell, by Text

[New Zealand, b.1942, At Oxford University, and then Professor at Pittsburgh University]

1994 Mind and World
p.185 There is no pure Given, but it is cultured, rather than entirely relative
p.456 Representation must be propositional if it can give reasons and be epistemological
I.6 p.18 Sense impressions already have conceptual content
I.7 p.20 Forming concepts by abstraction from the Given is private definition, which the Private Lang. Arg. attacks
Intro 7 p.-9 The logical space of reasons is a natural phenomenon, and it is the realm of freedom
