Summary

In this volume, Maher contextualizes the work of a group of contemporary analytic philosophers--The Pittsburgh School--whose work is characterized by an interest in the history of philosophy and a commitment to normative functionalism, or the insight that to identify something as a manifestation of conceptual capacities is to place it in a space of norms. Beginning by identifying the key players of the Pittsburgh School--Wilfried Sellars, Robert Brandom, John McDowell, John Haugeland, and others--and describing the central themes that characterize their work, the book then dedicates chapters to the School's contributions to individual areas of philosophy, covering language, action, mind, knowledge, and science.
