Uitgebreide omschrijving

In the first systematic study of the philosophy of Thomas Nagel, Alan Thomas discusses Nagels contrast between the subjective and the objective points of view throughout the various areas of his wide ranging philosophy. Nagels original and distinctive contrast between the subjective view and our aspiration to a view from nowhere within metaphysics structures the chapters of the book. A new Humean in epistemology, Nagel takes philosophical scepticism to be both irrefutable and yet to indicate a profound truth about our capacity for self-transcendence. The contrast between subjective and objective views is then considered in the case of the mind, where consciousness proves to be the central aspect of mind that contemporary theorising fails to acknowledge adequately. The second half of the book analyses Nagels work on moral and political philosophy where he has been most deeply influential.
