Theories

Abstract

As we have seen, Sellars’ views on induction and probability are directed toward the construction of a theory adequate to explaining the world around us. I would now like to consider specifically Sellars’ account of theories by looking as their structure and their role. What Sellars has to say about each of these topics bears on what he has to say about the other, hence the need to consider both.
