This is the definitive statement of the case. For the positivists, you might say, language aspires to the condition of natural science, but for the humanists it is essentially a poem. Taylor is on the side of the poets, and in his latest book he makes the case with eloquence, force and broad historical sweep. A few years later, the proto-humanist Johann Gottfried Herder attacked Condillac for presupposing what he intended to explain: how could his savages have known that they had ideas to communicate if they did not already have a language to express them? The standoff led to several other fateful differences, according to Taylor.

Charles Taylor has been one of the most original and influential figures in contemporary philosophy: his 'philosophical anthropology' spans an unusually wide range of theoretical interests and draws creatively on both Anglo-American and Continental traditions in philosophy. A selection of his published papers is presented here in two volumes, structured to indicate the direction and essential unity of the work. He starts from a polemical concern with behaviourism and other reductionist theories particularly in psychology and the philosophy of language which aim to model the study of man on the natural sciences. This leads to a general critique of naturalism, its historical development and its importance for modern culture and consciousness; and that in turn points, forward to a positive account of human agency and the self, the constitutive role of language and value, and the scope of practical reason. The volumes jointly present some two decades of work on these fundamental themes, and convey strongly the tenacity, verve and versatility of the author in grappling with them.

But the twro underlying views do not just confront each other in social science. They also polarize the other sciences of man psychology, for instance; and beyond that they inspire rival pictures of morality and human life. I want here to explore some of these deeper ramifications, by looking at two conceptions of what it is to be a person. Where it is more than simply a synonym for human being, person figures prim arily in moral and legal discourse. A person is a being with a certain moral status, or a bearer of rights.

Беккер мрачно оглядел море красно-бело-синих причесок. - Что у них с волосами? - превозмогая боль, спросил он, показывая рукой на остальных пассажиров.  - Они все… - Красно-бело-синие? - подсказал парень.
