Abstract

The View from Nowhere is the title of Thomas Nagel's influential 1986 study of the quest for objectivity in philosophic endeavors. Nagel grants that each people sees from nowhere, yet he explores why they might still pursue a view from nowhere. Here, Weinstein argues the value of what one sees from one's embedded position.
