Gilbert Ryle, Mountains and Mountaineering

In section 7 (Intelligent Capacities versus Habits) of chapter 2 (Knowing How versus Knowing That) of his The Concept of Mind (Hutchinson 1949) Ryle illustrates the topic of the section with the example of the attentive mountaineer who moves across icy rock, not by blind habit, but with skillful judgement.
