While the dawning of a new day begins the odyssey and is never completely absent, the dawn as a metaphor for upbringing and its effects over time becomes even more central as that tale progresses toward Aristotles and John McDowells integration of upbringing in their philosophical writings. In this way Dawn explicates the notion of how new forms of ethical thought enter human consciousness. Ending with McDowells idea of second nature, brief stops along the way integrate individual writings from Hugh of Saint Victor, Martin Luther, the Ottawa medicine society of Midewiwin, Charles Darwin, Joseph Conrad, A.

J. Grout, Milan Kundera, Hegel, Martin Seligman, and Jonathan Lear. The entire narrative focuses on a lifetime of excursions into practical wisdom using both fictional and real experiences as a background. In conjunction with McDowells analysis, Dawn highlights the strength of his philosophy -- as outlined in Mind and World and key essays from Mind, Value & Reality -- by showing (in the mind of one reviewer of McDowells) how his work creatively weaves, from the history of thought in general and philosophy in particular, answers that make sense of an account of the deepest intellectual sources of the problems constituting modern philosophy.
