Title: Dialogues with Davidson
Subtitle: Acting, Interpreting, Understanding
Edited By: Jeff Malpas
URL: http://mitpress.mit.edu/9780262015561
Description:

The work of the philosopher Donald Davidson (1917–2003) is wide ranging not
only in its influence and vision, but also in the breadth of issues that it
encompasses. Davidson’s work includes seminal contributions to philosophy
of language and mind, to philosophy of action, and to epistemology and
metaphysics.

In Dialogues with Davidson, leading scholars engage with Davidson’s work as
it connects not only with aspects of current analytic thinking but also
with a wider set of perspectives, including those of hermeneutics,
phenomenology, the history of philosophy, feminist epistemology, and
contemporary social theory. They link Davidson’s work to other thinkers,
including Collingwood, Kant, Derrida, Heidegger, and Gadamer.

The essays demonstrate the continuing significance of Davidson’s
philosophy, not only in terms of the philosophical relevance of the ideas
he advanced, but also in the further connections and insights those ideas
engender.
