This is the long-awaited third volume of philosophical writings by Davidson, whose influence on philosophy since the 1960s has been deep and broad. His first two collections, published by Oxford in the early 1980s, are recognized as contemporary classics. His ideas have continued to flow; now, in this new work, he presents a selection of his best work on knowledge, mind, and language from the last two decades. It is a rich and rewarding feast for anyone interested in philosophy, and essential reading for anyone working on these topics.

Industry Reviews

There is a wealth of fascinating ideas here ... Davidson's project is ambitious, but his vision is immensely powerful and its execution highly ingenious. It is a very considerable achievement at the intersection of epistemology, philosophy of mind and philosophy of language. Philosophical Investigations Davidson writes philosophy like Wagner wrote operas: nothing less than everything is ever at stake. Jerry Fodor, London Review of Books Ces essais contiennent les principes de sa theorie de la connaissance. Reconcilier, comme ce volume s'en donne le programme, connaissance de soi, connaissance d'autrui, et connaissance du monde commun, n'est pas un programme aise. Quoi qu'il en soit, l'ambition est la, et la constance, la profondeur de la recherche de Davidson depuis une vingtaine d'annees sont manifestes. A peu pres tous les themes classiques de la philosophie analytique sont ici retravailles, approfondis, et modifies, dans une prose extremement travaillee. Peu de philosophes ont eu une influence si forte sur la philosophie de ces dernie res de cennies, aussi bien dans les pays anglophones qu'en Europe. Qu'on suive ou non Davidson dans son ambitieux projet, qui ne vise rien moins qu'a concilier naturalisme et normativite, la lecture de ce volume est un must. Pascal Engel, Revue Philosophique
