|Title:||After Kant, Sellars, and Meillassoux: Back to Empirical Realism?||Authors:||O'Shea, James R.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/12418||Date:||11-Sep-2017||Online since:||2021-08-13T15:59:06Z||Abstract:||This chapter examines how Meillassoux's conception of correlationism in After Finitude relates firstly to Kant's transcendental idealist philosophy, and secondly to the analytic Kantianism of Wilfrid Sellars. I argue that central to the views of both Kant and Sellars is what might be called, with an ambivalent nod to Meillassoux, an objective correlationism. What emerges in the end as the recommended upshot of these analyses is a naturalistic Kantianism that takes the form of an empirical realism in roughly Kant's sense, but one that is happily wed with Sellars' scientific realism, once the latter is disentangled from two implausible commitments that made such a reconciliation seem impossible to Sellars himself.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Routledge||Copyright (published version):||2018 Taylor & Francis||Keywords:||Critique of Pure Reason; Naturalist empirical realism; Scientific realism||Subject LCSH:||Meillassoux, Quentin, 1976-
