This volume presents ten new essays on the work of Wilfrid Sellars and its implications for contemporary philosophy. Contributors run the gamut from established voices in the Sellarsian literature to the newest voices in the field. It addresses topics ranging from cognitive science and philosophy of mind to epistemology and the philosophy of language. This volume is of interest to those studying cognitive development, perception, justification and semantics. It will also be of great interest to anyone following the recent work of John McDowell or Robert Brandom.
Michael P. Wolf is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy and currently Director of the Cognitive Science Program at California State University, Fresno.
Mark Norris Lance is a Professor at Georgetown University in both the philosophy department and the Program on Justice and Peace.
