The Philosophy of Roderick M. Chisholm

(Volume XXV, 1997)

Chisholm has shaped contemporary American philosophy. He introduced the concept of intentionality into the Anglo-American intellectual world in the 1950s; he has done seminal work on the theory of knowledge, perception, evidence, foundationalism, and doxastic aspects of belief; and his development of the adverbial theory of sensory experience and of immanent agent causation have been impressive and persuasive.
