Wilfrid Sellars at AllExperts (807 words)
Sellars is best known as a critic of foundationalist epistemology, but his philosophical oeuvre is more generally directed toward the ultimate goal of reconciling intuitive ways of describing the world (both those of common sense and traditional philosophy) with a thoroughly naturalist, scientific account of reality.
Sellars' goal of a synoptic philosophy that unites the everyday and scientific views of reality is the foundation and archetype of what is sometimes called the "Pittsburgh School", whose members include Brandom, John McDowell, John Haugeland, and James Conant.
Sellars then goes on to construct "The Myth of Jones," a philosophical parable to explain how thoughts, intelligent action, and even subjective inner experience can be attributed to people within a strict behaviorist worldview.
Dictionary of Philosophy of Mind - Sellars, Wilfrid (1842 words)
Wilfrid Sellars received a BA from the University of Michigan in 1933 and an MA from the University of Buffalo in 1934.
Sellars imagines an early genius named Jones who invents the thought theory, that is, the theory that people are moved to act as they do by certain entities, namely, thoughts.
Second, although Sellars conceived of overt speech as among the behaviors to be explained in terms of thought, he explicitly denied that overt speech is typically an action resulting from motives.
