9780812693560: The Philosophy of Chisholm (Library of Living Philosophers, V.8)

This text mixes Chisholm as a disseminator of others ideas, with his own theories of knowledge and perception, his defence of Cartesian dualism, foundationalism, his adverbial theory of sensory experience, and his immanent agent causation as a solution to the problem of personal freedom.

From Library Journal:

Chisholm, in his eighties now and retired from his professorship at Brown University, is a philosopher's philosopher. In true Socratic tradition, he has always been more interested in refutations of his philosophical positions than in insisting that his thought is the last word on a problem. In that spirit, the format of this series gives him the ideal arena to engage in a dialog with leading exponents and opponents of his thought. The format calls for an intellectual autobiography, then expository and critical essays?in this case 30?with each followed by a response from Chisholm. The major areas of Chisholm's thought are engaged; the essays evaluate his work on intentionality, epistemology, ontology, and ethics. His rejoinder to each provides the reader with his latest thinking. As with most of the titles in this series, this is a necessary purchase for academic philosophy collections.?Leon H.
