In these lectures Husserl uses the admittedly Cartesian method to bracket the existence of the external world and to suspend theoretical categorizations. He also rejects, however, many of the claims derived from the Cartesian method, including some of Descartes’s own thoughts. ” Husserl calls the problem of their relation an absurdity (Widersinn). ”46 According to Husserl, Descartes failed to take the abstract self as a vantage point and instead started from the self as a natural human being. 47 Questioning the existence of the “external” world as a counterpart of the natural self therefore already presupposes the existence of the external world.

If pragmatists like Sellars and Rorty think that the givenness of physical objects is a myth, they are not going to understand the value of this insistence on the givenness of subjectivity either. As a holist Davidson would also reject this turn of phrase. Holism is the view that sentences get their sense from their relation to other sentences, not from some experiential givenness.
