Wilfrid Sellars was and remains one of the most prominent and important twentieth-century philosophers: his writings played a key role in shaping the philosophical agenda in the English-speaking world during the second half of the 20th century, and they remain an active focus of intensecritical attention and lively discussion. Jay Rosenberg studied under Sellars in the early 1960s, has been continuously engaged with his work for over forty years, and is widely regarded both as its foremost expositor and as one of Sellars' truest disciples. This volume presents Rosenberg'spreviously published studies of the central elements and implications of Sellars' philosophy, along with three new essays that further highlight and articulate the significance of his work, both historically and with respect to contemporary debates.
Jay F. Rosenberg is at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Editorial Reviews

"His writing is really first-rate: clear, well-structured, with an excellent sense of expository order and style, a keen eye for the joints of a philosophical dialectic, and a nose for cogent argument.... This book will be indispensable for those interested in Sellars and his Pittsburgh descendants. But it contains a great deal of good philosophy that will be profitably chewed upon by anyone interested in fundamental issues in metaphysics and epistemology."--Williem A. deVries, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
