The article focuses on the theory of conceptualism as suggested by John McDowell, South African philosopher in his book titled "Mind and World." It mentions that the concept of conceptualism according to McDowell, plays the role of sensibility in mediating the relation between mind and world which acts as a key to recognize the limits on cognition which is also discussed in the German philosopher, Immanuel Kant's doctrine of transcendental idealism. It also discusses several facts including, nature of the content, operations of conceptual capacities and the justification of empirical beliefs.
