    John McDowell.Maximilian De Gaynesford - 2004 - Wiley-Blackwell.
    John McDowell has set the philosophical world alight with a revolutionary approach to the subject, illuminating old problems with dazzling particularity. In this welcome introduction to his work, Maximilian de Gaynesford puts within comfortable reach of non-specialists McDowell’s demanding writing. The guiding argument of the book is that the apparent variety of McDowell’s interests disguises a core concern with a single basic goal: ‘giving philosophy peace’. Since the dawn of the subject, philosophy has struggled with the question: can our experience (...)

    I: The Meaning of the First Person Term.Maximilian de Gaynesford - 2006 - Clarendon Press.
    I is perhaps the most important and the least understood of our everyday expressions. This is a constant source of philosophical confusion. Max de Gaynesford offers a remedy: he explains what this expression means. He thereby shows the way to an understanding of how we express first-personal thinking. The book thus not only resolves a key issue in philosophy of language, but promises to be of great use to people working on problems in other areas of philosophy.

    How Not To Do Things With Words: J. L. Austin on Poetry: Articles.Maximilian de Gaynesford - 2011 - British Journal of Aesthetics 51 (1):31-49.
    If philosophy and poetry are to illuminate each other, we should first understand their tendencies to mutual antipathy. Examining mutual misapprehension is part of this task. J. L. Austin's remarks on poetry offer one such point of entry: they are often cited by poets and critics as an example of philosophy's blindness to poetry. These remarks are complex and their purpose obscure—more so than those who take exception to them usually allow or admit. But it is reasonable to think that, (...)

    Speech Acts, Responsibility and Commitment in Poetry.Maximilian De Gaynesford - 2013 - In Peter Robinson (ed.), The Oxford Handbook of Contemporary British and Irish Poetry. pp. 617-637.
    Philosophy has tended to regard poetry primarily in terms of truth and falsity, assuming that its business is to state or describe states of affairs. Speech act theory transforms philosophical debate by regarding poetry in terms of action, showing that its business is primarily to do things. The proposal can sharpen our understanding of types of poetry; examples of the ‘Chaucer-Type’ and its variants demonstrate this. Objections to the proposal can be divided into those that relate to the agent of (...)

    Is I Guaranteed to Refer?Maximilian De Gaynesford - 2003 - Pacific Philosophical Quarterly 84 (2):109-126.
    One claim about I, regularly made and almost universally endorsed, is that uses of the term are logically guaranteed to refer successfully. The claim is only rarely formulated perspicuously or argued for. Such obscurity helps disguise the fact that those who profess to advance the claim actually turn out to support not a logical guarantee at all but merely high security through fortunate coincidence. This is not surprising. For we have no good reason to accept the claim – granted, any (...)

    Incense and Insensibility: Austin on the ‘Non-Seriousness’ of Poetry.Maximilian de Gaynesford - 2009 - Ratio 22 (4):464-485.
    What is at stake when J. L. Austin calls poetry ‘non-serious’, and sidelines it in his speech act theory?. Standard explanations polarize sharply along party lines: poets and critics are incensed, while philosophers deny cause. Neither line is consistent with Austin's remarks, whose allusions to Plato, Aristotle and Frege are insufficiently noted. What Austin thinks is at stake is confusion, which he corrects apparently to the advantage of poets. But what is actually at stake is the possibility of commitment and (...)

    Attuning Film and Philosophy: The Space-Time Continuum.Maximilian De Gaynesford - forthcoming - In C. Fox & B. Harrison (eds.), Philosophy of Film Without Theory.
    Ordinarily, what we experience does not jump from one place or time to another—we have to pass through all the intermediate times and places. But in films, what we experience can jump in both dimensions, both separately and together. This phenomenon has been memorably described in film criticism by Rudolph Arnheim and it has been deployed philosophically by Suzanne Langer and Colin McGinn. But discussion of space-time discontinuity remains hampered by the lack of attunement between film critical and philosophical investigations. (...)

    Balance in the Golden Bowl: Attuning Philosophy and Literary Criticism.Maximilian De Gaynesford - forthcoming - In J. Conant (ed.), Hilary Putnam.
    This paper argues that Henry James’ treatment of balancing in The Golden Bowl—to which Putnam insightfully draws attention—calls for the attunement of philosophy and literary criticism. The process may undermine Putnam’s own reading of the novel, but it also finds new reasons to endorse what his reading was meant to deliver: the confidence that philosophy and thoughtful appreciation of literature have much to contribute to each other, and the conviction that morality can incorporate seriousness about rules alongside sensitivity to character (...)

  21. Geoffrey Hill and Performative Utterance.Maximilian De Gaynesford - 2013 - British Journal of Aesthetics 53 (3):359-364.
    Utterance of a sentence in poetry can be performative, and explicitly so. The best-known of Geoffrey Hill’s critical essays denies this, but his own poetry demonstrates it. I clarify these claims and explain why they matter. What Hill denies illuminates anxieties about responsibility and commitment that poets and critics share with philosophers. What Hill demonstrates affords opportunities for mutual benefit between philosophy and criticism.

    Hilary Putnam.Maximilian De Gaynesford - 2006 - Routledge.
    Putnam is one of the most influential philosophers of recent times, and his authority stretches far beyond the confines of the discipline. However, there is a considerable challenge in presenting his work both accurately and accessibly. This is due to the width and diversity of his published writings and to his frequent spells of radical re-thinking. But if we are to understand how and why philosophy is developing as it is, we need to attend to Putnam's whole career. He has (...)

    Philosophical Works as Objects of Aesthetic Judgment.Maximilian De Gaynesford - 1998 - Ratio 11 (1):1–13.
    This paper draws attention to the fact that works of philosophy are often judged by aesthetic criteria. This raises the question of whether philosophical writings may properly be regarded as suitable objects of aesthetic judgement in a strong sense; namely, that judging their worth qua works of philosophy is an aesthetic endeavour. The paper argues in the affirmative with the aid of a Kantian account of aesthetic judgement. Judging a work of philosophy by the means chosen may be regarded as (...)

    How is it that we think and refer in the first-person way? For most philosophers in the analytic tradition, the problem is essentially this: how two apparently conflicting kinds of properties can be reconciled and united as properties of the same entity. What is special about the first person has to be reconciled with what is ordinary about it . The range of responses reduces to four basic options. The orthodox view is optimistic: there really is a way of reconciling (...)

    Wittgenstein on I and the Self.Maximilian De Gaynesford - 2017 - In Hans-Johann Glock & John Hyman (eds.), A Companion to Wittgenstein.
    Consensus identifies an underlying continuity to Wittgenstein's treatment of the self and 'I', despite certain obvious surface variations and revisions. Almost all Wittgenstein's arguments and observations concerning 'I' and the self in the Tractatus are arranged as attempts to explicate. The philosophical self is not the human being, not the human body, or the human soul, with which psychology deals, but rather the metaphysical subject, the limit of the world, not a part of it. The picture that forms around the (...)
