Kant / Sellars Conference at the University of Chicago, February 21-23, 2014


About the Conference

Wilfrid Sellars was a leading American philosopher of the postwar period who wrote extensively on the interpretation of Kant’s philosophy. Many of his most interesting writings on Kant, however, were only published posthumously — some appearing only in the past few years. The conference will seek to bring together a handful of the leading North American and European scholars of Sellars’s work with a number of leading Kant interpreters. The three central topics of the conference will be  the following:

(1) Sellar’s contributions to a proper exegetical and philosophical understanding of Kant,

(2) the import of Sellars’s reading of Kant for contemporary philosophical debates about the nature of perceptual experience, and

(3) the place of Sellar’s writings on Kant in an overall understanding of Sellar’s own systematic philosophical project.
