Response to Tiles, “On Our Exosomatic Existence”

Tradition and Discovery 34 (2):22-25 (2007)
This paper is a response to Jim Tiles, “On Our Exosomatic Existence.” It accepts the thrust of the close reading Tiles has given of my Pragmatism and the Forms of Sense but also points out he himself has not fully adverted to certain features of the book dealing with language as a form of social interaction, the precise way the notion of a form of sense is being used, the relations between Polanyi and pragmatism, the function of “quality” as an analytical category in Dewey’s aesthetics, and the actual conceptual framework used to discuss embodied technics. I fully agree with Tiles about the need for a philosophy that accepts the task of “an extended conversation.”
