With his recently published account of know-how David Löwenstein takes a mediating position between intellectualists and anti-intellectualists. Therefore it may appear to be an interesting question to what extent arguments from both sides of the debate can be applied to Löwenstein's concept. The goal of this paper is to start a discussion of this question with regard to regress arguments which may be seen as variants of Ryle's famous one. As a preparation for this I want to begin with a recapitulation of Löwenstein's concepts. Afterwards his two main strategies against the regress argument are discussed. Roughly speaking I will argue that problems arise for both Löwenstein's deflation hypotheses which are central for the first strategy. In regard to the second strategy I want to show that it also relies on these hypotheses as long as Löwenstein does not want to abandon the claim that selfreferential capacities are necessary for genuine competence.

  • The journal Zeitschrift für philosophische Forschung, appearing since 1946, is among the most important academic German language journals. It is open to all topics, approaches, and positions of philosophical thought. Given the increasing differentiation and specialization of the field, it thus constitutes a forum offering its various disciplines the opportunity for mutual recognition and exchange. The articles published in it are subject to an anonymous peer review in which internationally renowned scholars of all areas of contemporary philosophical research participate.

    Die seit 1946 erscheinende Zeitschrift für philosophische Forschung gehört zu den wichtigsten deutschsprachigen Fachzeitschriften und steht allen Themen, Richtungen und Positionen der philosophischen Forschung offen. Angesichts der zunehmenden Ausdifferenzierung und Spezialisierung des Faches bietet sie damit auch ein Forum, in dem die verschiedenen Teildisziplinen sich gegenseitig wahrnehmen und in ein gemeinsames Gespräch kommen können. Die in ihr publizierten Abhandlungen durchlaufen ein anonymes Begutachtungsverfahren, an dem international anerkannte Forscher aus allen Spezialgebieten der gegenwärtigen philosophischen Forschung beteiligt sind.
