Group of 41 offprints of articles and reviews on philosophy, syntax, ontology, logic, logical positivism from the collection of Wilfrid Sellars

Paperback. Mainly very good. From the collection of Wilfrid Sellars; Sellars was a major American philosopher who was the first to synthesize American pragmatism with Continental analytical philosophy and Vienna Circle logical positivism. He ranks with Carnap, Hempel, Salmon and Grunbaum as among the 20th century's most influential philosophers. Bergmann was an influential member of the Vienna Circle of logical positivists, influenced by Carnap, Schlick and others -- as a Jew he fled for America with his family in the late 1930s and ended up becoming a professor at the University of Iowa.
