The work of Wilfrid Sellars has touched nearly every area of philosophy, from traditional debates in metaphysics, epistemology, and ethics, to contemporary issues in philosophy of language and mind.  Sellars’ contributions to each of these fields were strikingly original, historically informed, and deeply systematic.  For these reasons, his influence on the trajectory of philosophy was profound.  The magnitude of this influence is, however, obscured by some contemporary visions of 20th century philosophy, which either fail to give Sellars credit for his achievements, or leave him out of the story altogether.  The aim of this conference is to revisit Sellars’ important contributions, highlighting their relevance to the questions that philosophy faces today.
