Ryle and Thinking

  • F. N. Sibley
Part of the Modern Studies in Philosophy book series (MOSTPH)


This article is concerned mainly with views about thinking put forward by Ryle in a series of papers1 published since the discussion in Chapter IX of The Concept of Mind. He regularly distinguishes thinking, where this refers to “such activities as pondering, musing and calculating,” from thinking “that something is the case” (TL 65), and in most of these papers he deals with the former notion. I shall concentrate on this too.
