The CEU Philosophy department cordially invites you to a talk
Willem deVries (Fulbright Distinguished Lecturer, Universität Wien and
Professor of Philosophy University of New Hampshire)
"The Necessity of the Normative: The Resilience of the Manifest
Image in Sellars's Scientific Realism"

5.00 PM, Monday, 13. June, 14. Zrinyi str. / room 412

Although Sellars wrote of a "synoptic vision" in which the manifest image and
the scientific image are reconciled, many have taken his scientific realism
to entail the eventual dominance of the scientific image. I argue that this
is incorrect, indeed, that the practical reality of human life is essentially
tied to the ineliminable normativity of the manifest image.
