Anscombe and Davidson
I really have nothing to add to the comments thread, but I feel that I ought to link to this discussion over at Leiter Reports. It features good comments by Daniel Lindquist, Dave Maier, and Jimmy Doyle (who was the other Englishman at the University of Virginia Philosophy Department when I was there). If Stoutland really implies that Anscombe believes in Aristotelian physics then that would be unfortunate, but I suspect that he means to imply no such thing. I haven't read any of the book in question, but I think it needs to go on my "to read" list.
