  Robert Brandom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Robert Brandom (1950-) teaches philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh.
Brandom's work is heavily influenced by that of Wilfrid Sellars, Richard Rorty, Michael Dummett and his Pittsburgh colleague John McDowell.
Brandom has also published a collection of essays on the history of philosophy, Tales of the Mighty Dead (2002), a critical and historical sketch of the so-called "philosophy of intentionality".

Well, not all efforts at "publicity" cut fine enough to leave pre-existing *Verstehen* intact; and what we have in Brandom is a figure who pays less attention to "fine structure" and "expressivity*, properly considered, than anyone else of his generation (except on any given day).
Brandom deals with a number of outstanding problems in philosphy of language, epistemology, and philosophy of mind as these came to be construed by several generations of analytic philosophy beginning with Frege and continuing through Quine, Davidson, and Dummett.
Brandom's treatment of standard questions of reference which have plagued us since Russell are particularly original and ingenious.

 Making It Totally Explicit   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Brandom’s reductive theory is committed to the tracking and explanatory identity versions of non-reductive inferentialism’s central claims, e.g.
Brandom’s theory is a strengthening of its non-reductive counterpart.
Brandom’s defense of those identities, then, turns on his assumption that being reductive is a supporting feature of a theory.

Robert B. Pippin, The Persistence of Subjectivity: On the Kantian Aftermath, Cambridge University Press, 2005, 380pp, $28.99 (pbk), ISBN 0521613043.
Robert Pippin is engaged in an ambitious project.
Anticipating Davidson and Brandom, Kant insisted on "the autonomy of the normative domain, the claim that the only thing that bears on the sufficiency of a reason is another reason, never a mere state of affairs or cause on its own".

 [No title]
Brandom regards his theory of semantics and rationality as “expressivist” because he believes that the processes by which implicit understandings are taken to explicit articulation are fundamental to meaning, thinking, and communication.
Brandom distinguishes between “deontic status” and “deontic attitude.” A deontic status is the result of attributions others make to an individual at one moment in an on-going social interaction pertaining to the entitlements and commitments of this individual.
Brandom’s own illustrations are mostly like this, but his theory clearly extends far beyond this by calling attention to a vast implicit realm of inferences and pragmatic understandings in the form of interactive know-how.

 Centre for Time :: Events :: Workshop with Bob Brandom
Brandom's interpretation misses this radicality, assimilating Heidegger's account of how the theoretical depends on the non- or pre-theoretical to a conventional account of how the cognitively representational and mental depends on the non-representational and behavioural.
Hegel's law of contradiction states that "everything is contradictory", but according to Robert Brandom, this does not amount to a denial of the law of non-contradiction.
Both Brandom and Priest interpret Hegel's thought within essentially modern, post-Fregean, and hence, propositionally-based approaches to logic, but this, I will argue, ignores the relevance of Aristotelian term logic for Hegel's own logical thought and, in particular, for his conception of contradiction.

 Wilfrid Sellars, Robert B. Brandom, Richard Rorty: Empiricism and the Philosophy of Mind - Bøger
Bob Brandom's explicatory essay is very helpful, and untwists several tricky knots in the text.
The bright, but misguided, Brandom offers a study guide, which is no study guide, but an attempt to direct the reader at those aspects of Sellars' essay, which Brandom's own inferentialist philosophy is supposed to stem from.
Be forewarned that Brandom's study guide is not exegetical as one might hope.

 The Wesleyan Argus - Brandom's philosophy lecture rejects modern value of truth
In his talk, "Why Truth Doesn't Matter," at Russell House Monday night, University of Pittsburgh Professor of Philosophy Robert Brandom argued that truth is a useless and outdated metaphysical concept, that tends to confuse rather than aid logic.
Brandom argued that truth does not matter because the concept explains nothing for a statement.
Brandom is renowned for his work in philosophy of mind and especially for his 1994 work, "Making it Explicit: Reasoning, Representing, and Discursive Commitment." Brandom is the Distinguished Service Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh, where he has been teaching since 1976.

 PHIL351 - Meaning, Reasoning, and Discursive Practices
This course will be devoted to a close study of Robert Brandom's MAKING IT EXPLICIT, one of the most important and exciting projects in recent philosophy.
Brandom proposes a systematic reconception of standard philosophical conceptions of language, thought, reasoning, perception, and action.
Brandom begins instead with the ways that linguistic expressions are used in social practices, according to norms implicit in those practices.

 The Leiter Reports: Editorials, News, Updates: Brandom receives Mellon Foundation Award   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
The Mellon Foundation has announced its third set of Distinguished Achievement Awards in the Humanities, and a philosopher is again among the winners: Robert Brandom of the University of Pittsburgh.
With the exception of Pippin, whose work is of uneven quality (e.g., first-rate work on Hegel, mediocre work on Nietzsche, inconsequential work on Kant), these are all philosophers of considerable accomplishment, though it seems clear that the Foundation is striving hard to choose philosophers whose work is accessible to those outside the discipline.
Brandom is the closest they have come to choosing someone in the so-called "core" of philosophy (metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of language and mind)--the fact that Brandom counts among his admirers Habermas and Rorty no doubt helped!

 Robert B. Brandom Books - Signed, used, new, out-of-print
Robert B. Brandom is one of the most original philosophers of our day, whose book "Making It Explicit" covered and extended a vast range of topics in metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of language--the very core of analytic philosophy.
A work in the history of systematic philosophy that is itself animated by a systematic philosophic aspiration, this book by one of the most prominent American philosophers working today provides an entirely new way of looking at the development of Western philosophy from Descartes to the present.

 Philosophy 270: Metaphysics (Spring 2003)
I will also order as a recommended but not required Brandom's Articulating Reasons, which is a shorter, more accessible, but less detailed presentation of many of the same ideas.
The motivation is clear: Brandom's book is emerging as one of the most important Philosophy of Language and MandE works in recent decades, but the subtlety and complexity of his position and exposition has meant that it is more often cited and endorsed (or criticized) than well-understood.
If you think you might like to enroll, but are unsure about the extent to which you will have the time to exercise the required dedication during the spring quarter, you might start reading the text and writing short summaries of the chapters over the summer.

Robert Brandom's magnificent book is an attempt to rework the whole of the philosophy of language in terms of normative, socially articulated pragmatics.

Brandom begins by setting out a historical context and outlining a methodological rationale for his enterprise.
Then, in chapters on Spinoza, Leibniz, Hegel, Frege, Heidegger, and Sellars, he pursues the most fundamental philosophical issues concerning intentionality, and therefore mindedness itself, revealing an otherwise invisible set of overlapping themes and explanatory strategies.

Abstract: Introduction: Robert Brandom has it in mind to run a 'pragmatist' theory of content (/concept possession/linguistic competence).
That is, he wants to reconstruct notions like saying such and such or believing such and such (and, eventually, notions like knowing what a word means and having a concept) in terms of a distinctive kind of knowing how or being able to do something" (17).

Harvard University Press: Articulating Reasons: An Introduction to Inferentialism by Robert B. Brandom
Brandom's work, making the move from representationalism to inferentialism, constitutes a near-Copernican shift in the philosophy of language--and the most important single development in the field in recent decades.
Articulating Reasons puts this accomplishment within reach of nonphilosophers who want to understand the state of the foundations of semantics.
