This chapter explores the way in which, in his work, John McDowell has brought together a disjunctive move with an understanding of our relations to others. I aim to show how epistemological and metaphysical concerns together drive McDowell’s work here. Ultimately, in order to address issues concerning our relations to others, we must understand how the disjunctive move may apply both to our understanding of our experience of the world and to our understanding of behaviour. The result of a double application of the disjunctive move is that we are able to see our relations to others as relations to persons.
