Against passive intellectualism : reply to Crane.
Crane finds fault not with my positive conclusions, but with my description of the current lay in the land in the philosophy of mind. And, as he claims my assessment is false, he concomitantly rejects my diagnoses of its perceived troubled state. By his lights, I am wrong to suppose that there is a widespread (if only tacit) commitment to thinking of experience as spatio-temporal objects : this is a commitment to thinking of experiences as spatio-based schema. More than this, he makes the stronger claim that even if this practice abounds, it would hardly matter since there is not good reason that philosophers and cognitive scientists ought not to engage in it in any case.
