McGinn on Cognitive Closure

Since I’m very much in “cognitive closure” mode and am immersed in the work of Colin McGinn, I thought I’d post this brief chat. Having read most of McGinn’s philosophy of mind, I couldn’t characterize his work better than Steven Pinker: “McGinn is an ingenious philosopher who thinks like a laser and writes like a dream.” Reading McGinn is akin to the pleasure that one gets from reading Nozick and Clark – fireworks and clarity!
