Articulating Reasons by Robert B. Brandom
Book DescriptionRobert B. Brandom is one of the most original philosophers of our day, whose book "Making it Explicit" covered and extended a vast of topics in metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of language - the very core of analytic philosophy. This new book provides an introduction to the complex system that "Making it Explicit" mapped out. A tour of the earliest book's large ideas and relevant details, this text 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. This book puts this accomplishment within reach of non-philosophers who want to understand the state of the foundations of semantics.

From Empiricism to Expressivism, Hardback (January 2015)
Wilfrid Sellars ranks as one of the leading critics of empiricism--a philosophical approach to knowledge that seeks to ground it in human sense experience. Robert Brandom 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.
Reason in Philosophy, Paperback (September 2013)
Transcendentalism never came to an end in America. It just went underground for a stretch. An emphasis on our capacity to reason, rather than merely to represent, has been growing in philosophy over the last thirty years, and the author has been at the center of this development. This is a paradigmatic work of contemporary philosophy.
Perspectives on Pragmatism, Hardback (October 2011)
Pragmatism has been reinvented in every generation since its beginnings in the late nineteenth century. This book, by one of our most distinguished heirs of pragmatist philosophy, rereads cardinal figures in that tradition, distilling from their insights a way forward and closing with a clear description of the author's own analytic pragmatism.
Between Saying and Doing, Paperback (April 2010)» View all books by Robert B. Brandom
Between Saying and Doing aims to reconcile pragmatism with analytic philosophy. Robert Brandom investigates the relations between the meaning of linguistic expressions (logical, indexical, modal, normative, and intentional, among others) and their use. He offers new ways of thinking about empiricism, naturalism, and functionalism.
