Scruton on Davidson

by Chris Bertram on September 19, 2003

Roger Scruton has a “piece on Donald Davidson’s importance”: in the latest _Spectator_ .

UPDATE: Scruton’s piece is sort of OK, but I wouldn’t have bothered linking had I come across “this fascinating interview of Davidson”: by Ernest LePore first (via “Brian Leiter’s site”:

Gosh, and he doesn’t even say whether or not Davidson smoked.

Wow – respect to the Spectator.

That’s the most unapologetically full-on bit of analytical philosophy I’ve ever seen in a UK publication which isn’t actually a professional journal.

I just hope nobody turns to Scruton’s column by mistake in the expectation of finding some of the usual drool by Mark Steyn.

More seriously, that LePore interview’s marvellous. Good catch, Chris.
