Lists with This Book. Jan 02, Blakely rated it really liked it. A thousand little assaults on skepticism. Mar 15, Nat rated it it was amazing. Some people hate this book. Feb 22, David Gross rated it liked it Shelves: Having just read Ayer, I had to read the great anti-Ayer. Not quite as good, but almost as combatative, and it makes sensiiblia good points. Unfortunately, it was cobbled together from the Austin’s notes by someone else, so it doesn’t cohere as well as it ought, and sometimes the counter-arguments seem to miss the point of the arguments.

Mar 14, Zedder rated it it was amazing.

Anv who hate this book really don’t see what’s at stake in doing philosophy. Sep 20, Chant Cowen rated it really liked it. Interesting book on Austin’s conception of perception and critiquing Ayer’s “sense-datum” conception of perception.

He goes through all seventeen of Austin’s arguments. Unfortunately, this exercise just gets Ayer more deeply into the mire. May 13, Liam Sensf rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is sensobilia more fun than you think it is going to be. Well worth a read.

Jun 30, Brandon marked it as to-read. I’m going to try to read this after Merleau-Ponty’s Phenomenology of Perception. I think they would have gotten along well. Feb 17, Jake Bornheimer rated it really liked it Shelves: A beautifully written critique of Ayer and Price on sense-data and scepticism that taught me as much about how to write an argument clearly and persuasively as it did to teach me about the srnsibilia of perception and knowledge. If only Austin himself was alive long enough to write and publish this work himself.

Jan 09, Adrienne rated it liked it Shelves: After a semester reading the works of the analytic and continental philosophers was relieved to read this one. While I loved the reevaluation of our epistemological approaches by the other philosophers, I was depressed to see them explain away most of what we think we are certain of.

The author’s name appeared on the sensobilia as “J. Can’t blame ’em for trying. Mar 21, Vidit rated it liked it. However, the issues he discusses are central to theories of perception and this is, of course, a must read for anyone with an interest in metaphysics or epistemology. Nov 30, Anthony rated it it was amazing Shelves: Austin’s lectures present one of the most sophisticated analyses of what went wrong in the philosophical debate about perception and, more generally, the problems inherent in foundationalist epistemology.


I sensibiila re-read this many times. Feb 08, Blake Lin rated it really liked it. I need to learn how to write like Austin. Feb 17, Conor rated it it was amazing Shelves: There are only a few books I’ve read entirely in one sitting all short.
