Against passive intellectualism: reply to Crane

Chapter


Abstract


  • Crane finds fault not with my positive conclusions, but with my description of

    the current lay of the land in the philosophy of mind. And, as he claims my

    assessment is false, he concomitantly rejects my diagnosis of its perceived

    troubled state! By his lights, I am just wrong to suppose that there is a

    widespread (if only tacit) commitment to thinking of experience as spatio-

    temporal objects: this is a commitment to what I call the object-based

    schema. More than this, he makes the stronger claim that even if this

    practice abounds, it would hardly matter since there is no good reason

    that philosophers and cognitive scientists ought not to be engage

    in it in any case.
