Sellars, Davidson, Putnam, McDowell, and Dennett
This chapter discusses the contributions to, as well as some of the difficulties in, contemporary anti-representational philosophy. The focus is on the work of Wilfrid Sellars, Donald Davidson, Hilary Putnam, John McDowell, and Daniel Dennett. Although the work of these individuals has challenged some of the principal assumptions of representational philosophy, there have been problems in fully escaping its premises.
