Sample text

That means that there is a perhaps insuperable problem in giving a full description of the emergence of thought.... [but] There is a prelinguistic, precognitive situation which seems to me to constitute a necessary condition for thought and language, a condition that can exist independent of thought, and can therefore precede it.... The 24 CARL SACHS basic situation is one that involves two or more creatures simultaneously in interaction with each other and with the world they share; it is what I call triangulation.

True, they are careful to define materialism in such a way as not to be accused of it; but to all intents and purposes they stand for the same sort of thing that materialists have always stood for. 34 So the naturalists, it seems, are not what they say they are, and, as such, they promise more than they deliver. Sheldon later continues: ... when I accuse the naturalists of materialism, I mean a working materialism, a philosophy that goes beyond pure theory to set up a way of 46 CHARLES A. HOBBS life.

That distinction, in turn, is secured through anti-foundational, naturalistic transcendental argument: without that distinction, we would be unable to regard ourselves as agents at all, but triangulation allows us to see agency as natural. The priority of the vocabulary of agency permits a powerful criticism of Rorty’s (1998c) argument against McDowell (and Davidson). Against Rorty, Ramberg argues that the inescapability of agency shows that not every vocabulary can be regarded as on a par with the kinds of empirical generalization used in scientific explanation: “we should see an interesting difference between the sort of conceptual features that may distinguish the biological or the geological from each other or from the chemical or the physical, and the sorts of conceptual freedom that make the psychological distinct from all of these” (Ramberg 2004, 46).
