Sellars's ethics: Variations on Kantian themes

Philosophical Studies 101 (2-3):291-324 (2000)
In this essay I attempt to tease out and assess two arguments that pervade Sellars's writings on the practical sphere. The first is an argument that categorical reasonableness must be a part of any adequate account of practical reason. The second argues that, nonetheless, the Kantian's strong connection between morality and practical reasonableness cannot be defended. I argue that the former argument is a powerful and ingenious defense of a role for something more than hypothetical reasonableness in the practical sphere, while the latter argument against a strong conceptual connection between morality and reason fails.
