Sellarsian Synopsis: Integrating the Images

  • Jay L. Garfield Smith College, Northampton, MA, USA
Keywords: Philosophy and the Scientific Image of Man, Sellars, naturalizing epistemology


Most discussion of Sellars’ deployment of the distinct images of “man-in-the-world” in Philosophy and the Scientific Image of Man focus entirely on the manifest and the scientific images. But the original image is important as well. In this essay I explore the importance of the original image to the Sellarsian project of naturalizing epistemology, connecting Sellars’ insights regarding this image to recent work in cognitive development.
