WSS new works

Dear WSS members,

I am pleased to open the WSS New Works section. Here you will find updated references and links to books, papers and reviews that might be of interest to anyone involved in sellarsian studies, or just curious about what is going on in the recent literature on various sellarsian issues (e.g. perceptual knowledge, epistemic norms, functionalist semantics and philosophy of mind, nominalism, naturalism vs normativism, etc).

I shall try to be as exhaustive as possible, however do contact me if I overlooked anything that you find interesting and/or if you were willing to spread the word about a new publication: audebandini[at]

[About me: after a PhD dissertation dedicated to W. Sellars -- defended December 2008, Aix-en-Provence, France -- I am presently a post-doc at Université de Montréal (Canada), working on doxastic normativity ]
