13 offprints of articles on philosophy, language theory, logic, truth and meaning from the collection of Wilfrid Sellars

Paperback. All very good in wraps. 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. Donald Davidson was one of the most important philosophers of the latter half of the twentieth century and with a reception and influence that, of American philosophers, is perhaps matched only by that of W. V. O. Quine. Davidson’s ideas, presented in a series of essays (and one posthumous monograph) from the 1960s onwards, have had an impact in a range of areas from semantic theory through to epistemology and ethics. His work exhibits a breadth of approach, as well as a unitary and systematic character, that is unusual within twentieth century analytic philosophy (Stanford Encyclopedia). Includes: Freedom to Act (ND), The Material Mind (1973), Theories of Meaning and Learnable Languages (1964), Causal Relations (1967), Emeroses by Other Names (1966), Truth and Meaning (1967), On Saying That (1968), Radical Interpretation (1973), Semantics for Natural Languages (1970), Action and Reaction (1970), Eternal vs. Ephemeral Events (1971), In Defense of Convention T (1972?), The Logical Form of Action Sentences (1967). Very Good. Item #H17738
