An introduction to the work of Robert Brandom.
Jeremy Wanderer offers students a clear introduction to the philosophy of Robert Brandom, in particular his monumental work Making It Explicit, one of the most significant and daunting philosophical works of recent years. The book provides a clear sense of Brandom's project, motivates a close reading of the core text, and offers a context for an initial assessment and critique of Brandom's thinking. It highlights some of the philosophical problems that Brandom seeks to solve and explores the wider implications of his account. The first book to place Brandom's work squarely within contemporary Anglo-American philosophy and the broader history of philosophy, it will be a valuable resource for advanced students and philosophers tackling this challenging body of work.
