Philosophy and Social Criticism 33 (1):15-34 (2007)
s effort to examine the prospects of inferentialism (inspired by Wilfrid Sellars work) is examined in terms of the uncertainties of contemporary philosophy and Brandoms reading of selected prominent figures in the history of philosophy. The very idea of there being anything like a set of rules governing non-deductive inference (inferentialism) is problematic; so is Brandoms reading of the figures he has selected in order to illuminate his own proposal along historical lines. We never quite learn how inferentialism bears on the trajectory of Eurocentric philosophy and what the corrective is that Brandom advocates. Key Words: concept history inferentialism postmodernism pragmatism rule.
