Donald Davidson

This chapter is a further attempt to exorcise the traditional belief that in experiencing objects, there must be objects present to the mind. Davidson further illuminates and restates the arguments in the two preceding papers and offers more illuminating examples to make his case. He concludes that in experiencing objects, there are no objects before the experiencer's mind, for the attributes of such objects could not be hidden from the agent.

Keywords:   mind, objects before the mind
