Donald Herbert Davidson
Davidson studied at Harvard, under Alfred North Whitehead , among others, and wrote a dissertation on Plato 's Philebus. His interests at this time were mainly in the "history of ideas," broadly construed, but under the influence of W. V. Quine , whom he often credits as his mentor, he began to gradually turn toward the more rigorous methods and precise problems characteristic of analytic philosophy. During the 1950s Davidson worked with Patrick Suppes on developing an experimental approach to Decision Theory. They concluded that it was not possible to isolate a subject's beliefs and preferences independently of one another, meaning there would always be multiple ways to analyze a person's actions in terms of what they wanted, or were trying to do, or valued. This result is comparable to Quine 's thesis on the indeterminacy of translation, and figures significantly in much of Davidson's later work on philosophy of mind.

Biographical Sketch
Born 6 March, 1917, Springfield, Massachusetts, USA, Donald Herbert Davidson completed his undergraduate study at Harvard, graduating in 1939. His doctoral studies were interrupted by service with the US Navy in the Mediterranean from 1942-45. He graduated from Harvard in 1949 with a doctoral dissertation on Plato's `Philebus'. His first academic position was at Queen's College in New York and he has since held positions at Stanford, Princeton, and Rockefeller Universities, as well as at the University of Chicago and, since 1981, at the University of California at Berkeley.
Action and Mind
One of Davidson's earliest published papers is `Actions, Reasons and Causes' (1963). There Davidson argues, against the reigning Wittgensteinian orthodoxy of the time, that rational and causal explanation are compatible, and that only if reasons are the causes of the actions they rationalise can they be said to explain those actions. Crucial to Davidson's account of action explanation are the ideas of a `primary reason' - a belief-desire pair in the light of which an action is explained - and of action `under a description' (a phrase originally appearing in G. E. M. Anscombe's Intention [1959]). The latter idea provides a means by which the same item of behaviour can be understood as intentional under some decriptions but not under others.

    Donald Davidson
    Donald Davidson, the philosopher of mind and language at Berkeley, died yesterday. This makes the second giant of philosophy especially of my particular philosophical experience to die in the last 12 months. Rawls passed away earlier this year while I was in France. As a major figure of the canon of political philosophy, he was on the front page of the Times and many papers. Donald Davidson, though, was a philosopher's philosopher at the heart of the tumultuous "linguistic turn" of 20th century philosophy. The big advances in this century were not in ethics or political thinking, they were in understanding the role of talking and thinking themselves. It's up to you to decide what the big advances of the last century were, not me, but I'll continue giving you my humble opinion. Meanwhile, a European line of inquiry from the late 19th century sought to formalize with the precision of mathematics that most essential discipline: reason itself. If we can organize and precisely study the structure of mathematics, why can't we do the same for arguments and reasoning itself? We should know the truth of an argument from its pure and unsullied structure. Formal logic's father was Frege and its famous pioneers for anglophone philosophy were Whitehead and Russell . While philosophy was typically conducted in ordinary sentences (as hard as they sometimes were to understand) the dream of people inspired by Russell and Frege was to create a philosophy that was perfectly formal: If P and P>Q, then Q. Stuff a computer could check.

    1. Biographical Sketch
    Donald Herbert Davidson was born on March 6th, 1917, in Springfield, Massachusetts, USA. He died suddenly, as a consequence of cardiac arrest following knee surgery, on Aug. 30, 2003, in Berkeley, California. Remaining both physically and philosophically active up until his death, Davidson left behind behind a number of important and unfinished projects including a major book on the nature of predication. The latter volume was published posthumously (see Davidson, 2005b), together with two additional volumes of collected essays (Davidson 2004, 2005a), under the guidance of Marcia Cavell. While his first position was at Queen's College in New York, Davidson spent much of the early part of his career (1951-1967) at Stanford University. He subsequently held positions at Princeton (1967-1970), Rockefeller (1970-1976), and the University of Chicago (1976-1981). From 1981 until his death he worked at the University of California, Berkeley. Davidson was the recipient of a number of award and fellowships and was a visitor at many universities around the world. Davidson was twice married, with his second marriage, in 1984, being to Marcia Cavell.

Although published mostly in the form of short essays which do not explicitly rely on any overriding theory, his work is nonetheless noted for a strongly unified character—the same methods and ideas are brought to bear on a host of apparently unrelated problems—and for synthesizing the work of a great number of other philosophers, including

He studied English, Comparative Literature and Classics in his undergraduate years at Harvard, and in his sophomore year he attended two classes that made a lasting impression on him. These were two philosophy classes taught by Alfred North Whitehead in the last year of his career. Afterwards, Davidson was accepted to graduate studies in philosophy at Harvard, where he studied under Willard Van Orman Quine. Quine set Davidson on a course in philosophy quite different from that of Whitehead. Subsequently, Davidson did his dissertation on Plato's Philebus. According to Davidson, "The central thesis that emerged was that when Plato had reworked the theory of ideas as a consequence of the explorations and criticisms of the Parmenides, Sophist, Theaetetus

    Donald Davidson (1917-2003)
    by Anna Sherratt Donald Herbert Davidson ranks as one of the greatest American philosophers. Born in Massachusetts in 1917, he grew up in the Philippines and on Staten Island, New York. In 1935, he won a scholarship to Harvard where he studied English and Comparative Literature. Here Davidson met Willard Van Orman Quine, and formed the interests in philosophy of mind, action and language that would shape the rest of his career. Although Davidson described himself as besotted with philosophy, by no means was it his only interest. He enjoyed surfing, skiing, mountaineering and travel. He also worked for the US Navy, and once spent a summer in Hollywood writing radio scripts. Having taught in New York, Stanford, Princeton and Chicago, Donald Davidson spent the last twenty-two years of his life at the University of Berkeley, California. He died from a heart attack on the 31st of August. Davidson wrote a book on decision theory and over one hundred and twenty philosophical articles. Some of the best of these are collected in the volume
