Articulating reasons : an introduction to inferentialism by Robert Brandom( Book )

44 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Articulating Reasons offers an easy entry into two of the main themes of Brandom's work: the idea that the semantic content of a sentence is determined by the norms governing inferences to and from it, and the idea that the distinctive function of logical vocabulary is to let us make our tacit inferential commitments explicit." "Brandom's work, making the move from representationalism to inferentialism, constitutes a near-Copernican shift in the philosophy of language - and the most important single development in the field in recent decades. Articulating Reasons puts this accomplishment within reach of nonphilosophers who want to understand the state of the foundations of semantics."--Jacket
Reason in philosophy : animating ideas by Robert Brandom( Book )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An emphasis on our capacity to reason, rather than merely to represent, has been growing in philosophy over the years. This book gives an overview of the author's understanding of the role of reason as the structure at once of our minds and our meanings - what constitutes us as free, responsible agents
Making it explicit : reasoning, representing, and discursive commitment by Robert Brandom( Book )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Making it Explicit is an investigation into the nature of language - the social practices that distinguish us as rational, logical creatures - that revises the very terms of this inquiry. Where accounts of the relation between language and mind have traditionally rested on the concept of representation, this book sets out an alternate approach based on inference, and on a conception of certain kinds of implicit assessment that become explicit in language. Making It Explicit is the first attempt to work out in detail a theory that renders linguistic meaning in terms of use - in short, to explain how semantic content can be conferred on expressions and attitudes that are suitably caught up in social practices
Rorty and his critics( Book )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Essays, written by thirteen of the most distinguished living philosophers, together with Rorty's substantial replies to each, and other new material by him, offer by far the most thorough and thoughtful discussion of the work of the thinker who has been called "the most interesting philosopher alive."--Publisher description
Between saying and doing : towards an analytic pragmatism by Robert Brandom( Book )

24 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between Saying and Doing aims to reconcile pragmatism (in both its classical American and its Wittgensteinian forms) with analytic philosophy. It investigates the relations between the meaning of linguistic expressions and their use. Giving due weight both to what one has to do in order to count as saying various things and to what one needs to say in order to specify those doings, makes it possible to shed new light on the relations between semantics (the theory of the meanings of utterances and the contents of thoughts) and pragmatics (the theory of the functional relations among meaningful or contentful items). Among the vocabularies whose interrelate use and meaning are considered are: logical, indexical, modal, normative, and intentional vocabulary. As the argument proceeds, new ways of thinking about the classic analytic core programs of empiricism, naturalism, and functionalism are offered, as well as novel insights about the idea of artificial intelligence, the nature of logic, and intentional relations between subjects and objects."--Jacket
Tales of the mighty dead : historical essays in the metaphysics of intentionality by Robert Brandom( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A work in the history of systematic philosophy that is itself animated by a systematic philosophic aspiration, this book by one of the most prominent American philosophers working today provides an entirely new way of looking at the development of Western philosophy from Descartes to the present. Brandom begins by setting out a historical context and outlining a methodological rationale for his enterprise. Then, in chapters on Spinoza, Leibniz, Hegel, Frege, Heidegger, and Sellars, he pursues the most fundamental philosophical issues concerning intentionality, and therefore mindedness itself, revealing an otherwise invisible set of overlapping themes and explanatory strategies. Variously functionalist, inferentialist, holist, normative, and social pragmatist in character, the explanations of intentionality offered by these philosophers, taken together, form a distinctive tradition. The fresh perspective afforded by this tradition enriches our understanding of the philosophical topics being addressed provides a new conceptual vantage point for viewing our philosophical ancestors, and highlights central features of the sort of rationality that consists in discerning a philosophical tradition--and it does so by elaborating a novel, concrete instance of just such an enterprise."--Solapa

From empiricism to expressivism : Brandom reads Sellars by Robert Brandom( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American philosopher Wilfrid Sellars ranks as one of the leading twentieth-century critics of empiricism - a philosophical approach to knowledge that seeks to ground it in human sense experience. Sellars stood in the forefront of a recoil within analytic philosophy from the foundationalist assumptions of contemporary empiricists. From Empiricism to Expressivism is a far-reaching reinterpretation of Sellars from one of the philosopher's most brilliant intellectual heirs. Unifying and extending Sellar's most important ideas, Robert Brandom constructs a theory of pragmatic expressivism which, in contrast to empricism, understands meaning and knowledge in terms of the role expressions play in social practices. The key lies in Sellar's radical reworking of Kant's idea of the categories: the idea that many of the most important philosophical concepts is not to describe or explain the empirical world but rather to make explicit essential features of the conceptual framework that makes secription and explanation possible. Brandom reconciles otherwise disparate elements of Sellar's system, revealing a greater level of coherence and consistency in the philosopher's arguments against empiricism than has usually been acknowledged. From Empiricism to Expressivism clarifies what Sellars had in mind when he talked about moving analytic philosophy from its Humean to its Kantian phase, and why such a move might be of crucial importance today. -- from dust jacket
Expressivism, pragmatism and representationalism by Huw Price( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pragmatists have traditionally been enemies of representationalism but friends of naturalism, when naturalism is understood to pertain to human subjects, in the sense of Hume and Nietzsche. In this volume Huw Price presents his distinctive version of this traditional combination, as delivered in his Rene; Descartes Lectures at Tilburg University in 2008. Price contrasts his view with other contemporary forms of philosophical naturalism, comparing it with other pragmatist and neo-pragmatist views such as those of Robert Brandom and Simon Blackburn. Linking their different 'expressivist' programmes, Price argues for a radical global expressivism that combines key elements from both. With Paul Horwich and Michael Williams, Brandom and Blackburn respond to Price in new essays. Price replies in the closing essay, emphasising links between his views and those of Wilfrid Sellars. The volume will be of great interest to advanced students of philosophy of language and metaphysics"--
