O krytyce i pochwale zewnętrznej, o życzliwości interpretacyjnej i ludzkiej – w odpowiedzi Mariuszowi Grygiańcowi
On External Criticism and External Praise, on Interpretive and Personal Charity – A Reply to M. Grygianiec
Languages of publication
The paper is a reaction to M. Grygianiec’s reply in a discussion sparked on by his paper on the status of the epiphenomenalism objection. I correct some misunderstandings. In addition I offer an intuitive summary of my reconstruction of the debate. I show that Grynianiec’s reply does not undermine the reconstruction. I argue that to the extent that (external) praise of Davidson’s ideas is possible, so is external criticism. Moreover, I argue that interpretative charity demands a charitable stance not only to Davidson but also to his critics.
