18th century empiricism evoked a radical response from Kant and Hegel, the German Idealists, emphasizing the agency involved in knowledge and experience. 20th century empiricism evoked a parallel response from Wilfrid Sellars that has left its mark on contemporary philosophy. Juxtaposing readings from historical and contemporary sources, the central issues in this seminar concern the nature of mind and of sensory experience, the concepts used to make sense of them, the possibility of radical conceptual change, the role of the empirical sciences in ontology, and the sources of the normativity essential to human agency. Participants will also present their work in progress to the group for discussion.

The *deadline of March 1st* approaches for our exciting 4-week NEH summer seminar for 16 U.S. based college/university teachers, 'After Empiricism: Kant, Hegel, and Sellars' this summer at UNH!  The application is not onerous, there is a stipend of $3,300 for living expenses, and there's no need for expertise on all three thinkers: just an interest in engaging in some fascinating philosophical explorations and exchanges from June 19 - July 19!  Please check out our website for application details and further information – and spread the word!
