Philosophical debate continues over the relation of mind to body. ‘Cartesian dualism’ is the dirty word, but can even a moderate materialism make proper sense of the full range of human intellectual and spiritual activity? Determining whether, what, and how we know calls for a philosophy of the flesh articulated in full consciousness of our bodily situatedness. At the same time, a philosophy of the flesh, or even a philosophy in the flesh, does not require a scepticism about the human capacity for transcendence, or agnosticism about the reality of transcendent truth.
