She writes about her initial worries that caring for the souls of her students was at the expense of their intellectual development, and while she says that she eventually came to see that "fostering nondualism and taking care are integral to the intellectual development of my students" (p. 98), this point may not be as clear to her readers. The worry here is that while McCarthy has pro vided a fine argument for the importance of nondualism and embodiment in philo sophical thought, this argument may not extend all the way to the sorts of practices http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Philosophy East and West University of Hawai'I Press

Abstract

been a rational, individualistic environment. While much of this section is a depar ture from the philosophical considerations of the preceding chapters, McCarthy elu cidates the connections that she sees between them. Indeed, it is in this final chapter that many of McCarthy's claims gain purchase, as she offers a real, embodied, rela tional example of the sort of space she hopes to create. It could be argued that there are places in this final chapter in which McCarthy does not go far enough in explaining just how it is that the type of embodied ethics she has been advocating is enacted. She writes about her initial worries that caring for the souls of her students was at the expense of their intellectual development, and while she says that she eventually came to see that "fostering nondualism and taking care are integral to the intellectual development of my students" (p. 98), this point may not be as clear to her readers. The worry here is that while McCarthy has pro vided a fine argument for the importance of nondualism and embodiment in philo sophical thought, this argument may not extend all the way to the sorts of practices
