Harley-Davidson: words that evoke the open American road and the "Made in America" tradition like no others. The sweeping chopper handlebars, the distinctive throaty low-speed rumble of the engine and the unmistakable logo are recognized the world over.
Twelve-year old Charley Anne Warfield has cancer. Pancreatic cancer. It killed her grandmother. Her mother is in remission. It's metastasized and moved to her liver. Six months is what Gary and Jean, her parents, hope for. They keep it a secret from Charley. Just want her to live a normal life for as long as she can. But mysterious neighbors, a horse that won't die, and a magical beach ride, teach Charley many lessons about miracles. And about trust. In herself. Her family. Her horse. Her God.
According to many commentators, Davidson's earlier work on philosophy of action and truth-theoretic semantics is the basis for his reputation, and his later forays, first into the theory of interpretation, and ultimately into what became known as the triangulation argument, are much less successful. This book by two of his former students aims to change that perception.
In Part One, Verheggen begins by providing an explanation and defense of the triangulation argument, then explores its implications for questions about the social character of language and thought, semantic normativity and naturalism, and skepticism about the external world. In Part Two, Myers considers what the argument has to say about values and reasons, and whether it can quiet skeptical worries based on claims about the nature of motivation, the extent of disagreement, and the authority of morality. The book reveals Davidson's later writings to be full of innovative and important ideas that deserve much more attention than they are currently receiving.
