Willem A. deVries is Professor of Philosophy at the University of New Hampshire.Review:
"It would have been impossible for Willem deVries to leave everyone who grapples with Sellars happy with everything in his book. But within the limits of what is offered only as an introduction, he has done an extraordinarily good job of explaining this major thinker." - John McDowell, TLS "A hugely valuable gift to philosophy. It accurately and clearly summarizes the work of perhaps the most difficult major twentieth-century figure in philosophy, and in a way that makes his hugely important contributions accessible to all. It is far and away the most accurate and accessible commentary that we now have on Sellars." - Ruth Millikan, University of Connecticut "thoughtful, reliable, and appropriately comprehensive in scope." - Robert Brandom "The task of writing an effective critical study of Sellar's philosophy is unquestionably a daunting one. DeVries has risen admirably to the occasion. His book is clearly written, comprehensive in its scope, and presents an admirably accurate and sensitive picture of Sellars's philosophical convictions and contributions." - Jay F. Rosenberg, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill "A first-rate work on one of the central philosophical figures of the twentieth century. It is clear, comprehensive and authoritative. This book is a major achievement." - Paul Coates, University of Hertfordshire
