    One thought on “Wilfrid Sellars: Naturalism with a Normative Turn”

    1. Liked this a little more than the deVries book. Seems a little more accessible to advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students.

    2. Lucid and compelling introduction to a truly remarkable 20th C. philosopher. A perfect balance between being substantially informative and enticingly inadequate - as all introductions should be.
