Thinking about Animals: James, Wittgenstein, Hearne

Nordic Wittgenstein Review 5 (1):9-29 (2016)
Abstract
In this paper I reconsider James and Wittgenstein, not in the quest for what Wittgenstein might have learned from James, or for an answer to the question whether Wittgenstein was a pragmatist, but in an effort to see what these and other related but quite different thinkers can help us to see about animals, including ourselves. I follow Cora Diamond’s lead in discussing a late paper by Vicki Hearne entitled “A Taxonomy of Knowing: Animals Captive, Free-Ranging, and at Liberty”, which draws on Wittgenstein and offers some insights that accord with pragmatist accounts of knowledge.
