Peter Olen

Wilfrid Sellars and the Foundations of Normativity

€ 106.65


While Wilfrid Sellars` philosophy is often depicted in an ahistorical fashion, this book explores the consequences of placing his work in its historical context. In order to show how Sellars` early publications depend on contextual factors, Peter Olen reconstructs the conceptions of language, psychological, and social explanation that dominated American philosophy in the early 20th century. Because of Sellars` differing explanations of language and behaviour, Olen argues that many of Sellars` early commitments are incompatible with his later works. In the course of doing so, Olen highlights problematic tensions between Sellars` early and later conceptions of language, meta-philosophy, and normativity.

Supplementing the main text is a collection of previously unpublished archival material from Wilfrid Sellars, Gustav Bergmann, Everett Hall, and other early 20th century philosophers. This text will be a useful resource to those with an interest in the history of American philosophy, the history of analytic philosophy, Wilfrid Sellars` philosophy, and the myriad issues surrounding normativity and language.
