This edited volume systematically addresses the connection between Wilfrid Sellars and the history of modern philosophy, exploring both the content and method of this relationship. It intends both to analyze Sellars' position in relation to singular thinkers of the modern tradition, and to inquire into Sellars' understanding of philosophy as a field in reflective and constructive conversation with its past. The chapters in Part I cover Sellars' interpretation and use of Descartes, Leibniz, Hume, Kant, and Hegel. Part II features essays on his relationship with Peirce, Frege, Carnap, Wittgenstein, American pragmatism, behaviorism, and American realism, particularly his father, Roy Wood. Sellars and the History of Modern Philosophy features original contributions by many of the most renowned Sellars scholars throughout the world. It offers an exhaustive survey of Sellars' views on the historical antecedents and meta-philosophical aspects of his thought.
