Interviewer’s Introduction

  1. Tim Crane asks whether knowing1 whether knowing what wine tastes like eludes physics and whether not being a materialist means he has to be an immaterialist.
  2. He thinks people misread Descartes.
  3. He doesn’t think what is thought about implies a difference in thought content and that externalism relies on this and so is faulty.
  4. He thinks that the world is divided into natural real unities and that naturalism is a methodological not a metaphysical position.
  5. He finds Wittgensteinians can be dogmatic, rehabilitates the myth of the given and discards qualia.
  6. He’s a fan but but not a follower of Fodor, has tolerant views about religion, thinks Stephen Hawking is wrong about philosophy and that the analytic/continental divide is not straightforward.
  7. He finds Husserl’s intentionalism an escape route from FregeRussell and doesn’t think Meinong insane.
  8. This makes him a most bodacious groove.
