Sellars’ Epistemological Lexicon
The article contextualizes the usage of the main concepts of Sellars’ philosophy and determines Sellars’ attitude to Kant’s philosophy of subjectivity. The author proves that difficulties in translation of the concepts are caused by the two conditions: (1) the complexities of Sellars’ epistemological position that tries to combine naturalism and conceptualism, and (2) his intention to improve Kant’s transcendental doctrine by introducing its linguistic interpretation.
