Description - Articulating Reasons by Robert B. Brandom

Robert 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.
