Biography

Wilfrid S. Sellars (1912-1989) was a major American philosopher who was active in the middle part of the 20th century. His father was the prominent Canadian-American philosopher Roy Wood Sellars. Wilfrid Sellars’s family traveled in Europe during his childhood and youth and he attended educational institutions in France and in Germany. He attended the University of Michigan, receiving an A.B. degree in 1933. He then attended the University of Buffalo, located in Buffalo, New York, from which he obtained an AM in 1934. He then traveled to England, where as a Rhodes Scholar he enrolled at Oriel College, Oxford. He earned a BA from Oriel in 1936 and an MA in 1940. In 1938 Sellars took up his first academic post as Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Iowa.

Sellars served in the United States Navy during World War II. After the war, in 1946, he moved to the University of Minnesota, as an assistant professor of Philosophy. At Minnesota he established a productive professional relationship with Herbert Feigl, working with him at the Minnesota Center for the Philosophy of Science. In 1950 the two of them founded Philosophical Studies, a forum for publishing articles and books in the new sub-discipline of analytic philosophy, and were co-editors of the early volumes.

In 1956 Sellars, while at the University of London as a Special Lecturer, delivered one of his most important papers. This was later published as “Empiricism and the Philosophy of Mind.” In 1958 Sellars became a Professor of Philosophy at Yale University. In 1963 Sellars moved to the University of Pittsburgh where he became the University Professor of Philosophy. Sellars remained at the University of Pittsburgh for the remainder of his active professional life.

Sellars delivered lectures in distinguished lecture series such as the John Locke Lectures Series of Oxford University. This lecture series was subsequently published as Science and Metaphysics. Other important lecture series include the Matchette Foundation lectures of 1971, given at the University of Texas and later published as “The Structure of Knowledge;” the 1973 John Dewey Lectures of the University of Chicago, later published as Naturalism and Ontology, and the 1977 Paul Carus Lectures which were later published as “Foundations for a Metaphysics of Pure Process”.

Sellars was renowned as a teacher and had profound influence on many students, both undergraduate and graduate, during his teaching career. His teaching style was lively and effective and he was able to communicate core ideas in philosophy in a clear and profound way. Some of the students affected by Sellars’ teaching went on to become very prominent philosophers themselves. Among these are Pedro Amaral, Bruce Aune, Robert Brandom, Hector Neri Castaneda, Paul Churchland, James Conant, John McDowell, Willem De Vries, Richard Rorty, Jay Rosenberg, Johanna Seibt, Jeffrey Sicha, Tim Triplett, and Bas Van Fraassen.


Collection Scope and Content Notes

The Wilfrid S. Sellars Papers reflect the working life of a professional philosopher of science. Focusing on his professional pursuits in researching, writing and teaching from the 1930s through 1987, these files consist of books, correspondence, contracts, course materials, financial records, manuscripts, notes, photographs, publications, and reports. Especially significant are the manuscripts, which range from notes and working drafts in Sellars’s own hand to the published articles.

Although smaller than the other series, the first series provides researchers with records pertaining to the more personal aspects of Sellars’s life. The second, fifth and sixth series document the various stages of researching, writing, and editing of manuscripts employed by Sellars. The third series emphasizes Sellars’s academic duties as a philosophy professor from 1938 to 1987. The fourth series highlights Sellars’s contributions to the philosophy community as an editor, consultant, and lecturer, which compliment his duties as an author and professor. The seventh series documents the career of Sellars’s father, Roy Wood Sellars, which is included because of the close personal and professional interactions between them.

Digital reproductions of portions of the collection are available electronically, specifically Series I. Personal, Subseries 2. Educational Material and Series II. Research and Writing, Subseries 1. Handwritten Notes and Subseries 2. Pre-Publication Materials.

Collection Inventory

Series I. Personal, 1899-1988

Scope and Content Notes:

These files mostly relate to Sellars' life prior to joining the Philosophy Department at the University of Minnesota in 1946, and highlight Sellars' interests and activities beyond philosophy and academic life. The files contain correspondence, financial records, military service files, and manuscripts, as well as records pertaining to his mother and to his first wife. The files are further described in the following subseries: Correspondence and General Files, Educational Materials, and Photographs.

Subseries 1. Correspondence and General Files, 1899-1988

Scope and Content Notes:

While the majority of these files center on Sellars' personal pursuits, the bibliographies, biographical material, and curriculum vitae provide succinct summaries of Sellars' professional career. The core of the personal files is the correspondence, which emphasizes the friendships that Sellars developed during his years in Europe. A large portion of the correspondence occurs between Sellars and his first wife and details the early development of their relationship. Researchers interested in understanding Sellars' personal associations with other philosophers should refer to the professional correspondence in Subseries IV. In addition to correspondence, there are financial records that are arranged topically and pertain to matters such as his salary, real estate purchases, and royalty earnings. The military service files detail his enrollment, training, and service in the United States Navy during World War II. This section also contains the personal papers of Sellars' mother and first wife. These personal papers contain legal documents relating to their estates and entrance to the United States, as well as their interest in writing.

The lecture notes are handwritten notes taken by Sellars during his post-secondary education. They are filed alphabetically by lecturer and consist of both loose sheets and bound notebooks. The lecture notes are usually labeled with the lecturer’s name and the topic of the course but in a few instances the lecturer is unknown. The notebooks may have one series of notes starting from the front of the notebook, and a second series starting from the back of the notebook, with the rear-forward handwriting inverted. Both types of notes may include reading lists for the course. In a few cases, there are typed, word-for-word transcriptions of the handwritten notes. Topics include the works of Hume, Lewis, Plato, Spinoza, and Wittgenstein, as well as logic, epistemology, and ethics. In addition to the lecture notes taken by Sellars, this section also contains two typed versions of notes created by Wittgenstein’s students in the 1930s.

Section: Miscellaneous

Scope and Content Notes:

This section contains correspondence written to Sellars in regards to his education at Oxford. Primarily, this correspondence is comprised of brief notes of congratulations sent to Sellars for passing exams. There are also several letters of recommendation Sellars received from members of the Oriel College faculty. Researchers may also be interested in Sellars’s correspondence with his first wife Gertrude Mary Sharp, which is located in the personal correspondence section and discusses his education and their developing relationship. In addition to correspondence, this section also contains examination booklets and exams. The majority of these files contain exam questions. However, two of the Oxford files contain Sellars’s handwritten answers to examinations. Sellars’s GRE scores are also located here. The remaining files document some of Sellars non-professional activities and interests while in graduate school. More specifically, it includes receipts from the doctor and bookstore, artifacts from the Jowett Society, the Oriel College Boat Club, and administrative documents dating from Sellars’s time at Oxford and Harvard.

Series II. Research and Writing, 1925-1990

Scope and Content Notes:

This series documents an important facet of Sellars' philosophical writings. Unlike the library series that contains his published works, this series features early drafts of his manuscripts that may or may not have been published. The first subseries, handwritten notes, contains the earliest drafts of Sellars' lectures, manuscripts, letters, and other items written in his own hand. Frequently, these handwritten notes are rather difficult to read. Thankfully, these notes are closely linked to the files in the second subseries, Prepublication Materials, which appear to be the typed versions of the earlier handwritten drafts. Sellars' own writing is supplemented by the unpublished works of other philosophers, which are located in the third subseries, Others' Manuscripts. While many of these manuscripts were sent to Sellars to obtain critiques, others may have been requested by Sellars as preliminary research for his own writings. These files are further described at the subseries level.

Documents found within the first two subseries have been digitized. Each digital image is represented as a PDF. The entire folder contents are scanned and represented online.

Subseries 1. Handwritten Notes, 1948-1980

Scope and Content Notes:

These materials are subdivided into five categories: calculations, lectures, letters, manuscripts, and miscellaneous. These handwritten materials appear to be the earliest drafts of Sellars's philosophical works, which were later dictated to a secretary. Due to the nature of Sellars's handwriting, this material is rather difficult to decipher. However, these materials could provide researchers with insight into Sellars's thought processes. Most of these notes are written on yellow legal pads and vary in length from a few sheets to an entire tablet's worth of notes. When possible, the files are arranged alphabetically by published title. Sometimes Sellars supplied the title, but more commonly the titles are archivist assigned. More specific descriptions of each of the five categories are listed below.

Section: Calculations

Scope and Content Notes:

The calculations often contain a sequence of philosophical proofs that generally do not contain a narrative explanation. They tend to be less dense than the lectures or manuscripts and usually consist of only a few pages.

Section: Lectures

Scope and Content Notes:

The lecture files contain the early drafts of Sellars remarks at speaking engagements such as lectures, symposiums, meetings, and conferences. The lecture files tend to be the bulkiest of the handwritten notes and it is not uncommon for these lecture notes to also serve as the preliminary drafts for Sellars’s manuscripts.

Section: Manuscripts

Scope and Content Notes:

The manuscript files contain the early drafts of manuscripts, many of which went on to become published works by Sellars. Therefore, these files are very closely tied to the prepublication materials located in the next subseries. The handwritten files often contain fragments of articles, rather than the complete work. Where possible, they are arranged alphabetically by published title, rather than the working titles.

Section: Miscellaneous

Scope and Content Notes:

The miscellaneous files contain documents that were either too difficult to decipher and assign to a category, or contained a combination of several types of documents. The most notable of these items are the two "dated philosophical journals." These journals cover the period from 1949 to 1956, a period which is generally undocumented by the other handwritten notes. These notebooks have regular dated entries and appear to be a professional diary. The first notebook summarizes his philosophical activities such as attendance at lectures, progress on his manuscripts, and what he plans to do next. It also contains philosophical musings. These journals feature large left-hand margins, which Sellars sometimes utilized for critiquing his earlier thoughts. The second journal is much like the first, but speaks less to his overall activities and focuses predominately on the development of philosophical arguments. These philosophical writings appear to be the key arguments from his papers, lectures, and letters and often feature large excerpted sections.

Folder 3-4 Mixture of seemingly unrelated items, undated
Folder 5-6 Teaching-related materials, undated
Folder 7 Works in progress, undated

Subseries 2. Pre-Publication Materials, 1941-1983

Scope and Content Notes:

These files contain Sellars's unpublished manuscript drafts, which were the earlier versions of his published works. These manuscripts are arranged alphabetically by manuscript title. In a few instances, the manuscript drafts are augmented by related correspondence. The vast majority of the revisions and inserts added to the manuscripts were done by Sellars. However, there are a few manuscripts that contain editor notations. In general, the revisions range in content from grammatical changes to extensive modifications of Sellars's philosophical arguments. These revisions reveal Sellars's tendency to cross out entire sections of his argument and insert new pages. The bulk of these files are either typed or mimeographed. A small portion of the files are entirely handwritten and can be rather difficult to decipher. The files vary in length. Some of the files provide only one draft of a particular manuscript, while a larger portion of the files actually contain multiple drafts of the manuscript and document various points in the editorial process. Whenever possible, these multiple drafts are arranged chronologically from the earliest to the most developed version. All of the manuscripts are philosophical in nature and focus on Sellars's interests in the areas of epistemology, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, and ontology.

Subseries 3. Manuscripts of Other Authors, 1925-1990

Scope and Content Notes:

These materials represent unpublished versions of articles, book chapters, and conference papers, with the vast majority being articles intended for publication in scholarly journals. The manuscripts are arranged alphabetically by author and in the case of coauthors, the manuscript is filed by the primary listed author. While this series contains works written by Sellars's peers, the authors here are largely his former students. These student manuscripts reveal their development as professionals in the philosophical community. Most of the manuscripts do not contain annotations, and those that do have minimal markings consisting of underlined sections and minimal commentary in the margins. Approximately half of the manuscripts contain cover letters, which generally introduce the manuscript and solicit comments from Sellars. The topics covered in these manuscripts are strictly philosophical and center on Sellars's expertise in philosophy of mind, epistemology, meaning, pragmatism, and history of philosophy. Some notable exceptions to the minimal annotations are the manuscripts originating from Rigoberto Juarez-Paz, which were heavily annotated. Also noteworthy are the manuscripts of Robert Turnball's "Aseity and Dependence in Leibniz's Metaphysics" and Gregory Vlastos's "The Senonian Argument Against Plurality," which contain detailed critiques from Sellars. While a generalization, one could also state that the manuscripts Sellars most heavily analyzed were those that referred to his own works.

Series III. Academic Career, 1938-1989

Scope and Content Notes:

This series focuses on Sellars' professional activities at each of the following universities: the University of Iowa, University of Minnesota, Yale University, and University of Pittsburgh. The files are divided into four subseries, the first one documents Sellars' activities as an administrator, the second illustrates his teaching style, the third contains dissertations from students either supervised or influenced by Sellars, and the fourth contains recommendations written by Sellars for his students.

Subseries 1. Administrative Files, 1950-1989

Scope and Content Notes:

The Administrative files pertain to Sellars's work at his final three academic institutions: University of Minnesota, Yale University, and University of Pittsburgh. In general, these files document Sellars's participation in University-wide committees and organizations, as well as his contributions to philosophy-based organizations, and to the department of philosophy itself. The files contain correspondence, philosophical essays and memos, financial records, meeting minutes, proposals and planning documents, and student files.

Section: Minnesota, 1950-1979

Scope and Content Notes:

Consisting of meeting minutes, correspondence, and proposals, the University Committee files document Sellars's participation in several university-wide committees.

The philosophical organizations files pertain to Sellars's involvement in the University of Minnesota's Center for the Philosophy of Science from 1952-1959. Information on the Center's establishment and early activities can be obtained from the Proposal folder and the Administrative files. The memos are rather significant, since they contain philosophical essays and critiques written primarily by the Center's members. Most notably, the memos contain entries by Wilfrid Sellars, Michael Scriven, Paul Meehl, Herbert Feigl, Rudolf Carnap, and Arthur Pap. More specifically, the memos contain several drafts of "Concept of Emergence" by Meehl and Sellars, as well as a transcript from a 1955 meeting with Bohnert, Carnap, Feigl, Meehl, and Pap.

The Philosophy Department files highlight Sellars's activity within the department, such as developing curriculum, obtaining a promotion, and departmental budgeting. The dossier details his plans for research and advanced studies. The manuscripts file is rather interesting, as it contains essays written by Sellars, his colleagues, and some essays that can not be attributed. The student files concern graduate students and primarily contain prospectuses, abstracts and outlines for theses, and some administrative correspondence between Sellars and his former students.

The Philosophical Organization files detail Sellars’s participation in three organizations, the Archives of Scientific Philosophy (ASP), Center for the Philosophy of Science (CPS), and History and the Philosophy of Science (HPS). The ASP files focus primarily on the acquisition and preservation of philosophy-based archival collections, especially the papers of Rudolf Carnap. The CPS files generally document the establishment and administrative functions of the Center. The HPS files are also largely administrative in scope and contain research proposals, correspondence, agendas, minutes, and a department prospectus.

The Philosophy Department files highlight Sellars’s departmental duties, especially those of advising students, developing curriculum, and chairing the department. The folders are arranged alphabetically by record type. The Graduate Program file contains brochures, memos, placement information for students, and course descriptions for the master’s program in Philosophy. The student files concern graduate students and primarily consist of admission information, dissertation prospectuses, abstracts and outlines for theses, and some administrative correspondence between Sellars and his former students.

Subseries 2. Teaching Materials, 1938-1988

Scope and Content Notes:

These files are separated into two categories: on-campus lectures dating from 1939 to 1988 and off-campus lectures dating from 1959 to 1976. The on-campus teaching materials illustrate Sellars's teaching style at the University of Iowa, University of Minnesota, Yale University, and the University of Pittsburgh. The files are arranged alphabetically by course topic, and extensive files exist for: Ethics, Introduction to Philosophy, Logic, Metaphysics, Central Problems in Philosophy, and Theory of Knowledge. The Miscellaneous files contain items from courses that could not be classified by topic, or were too limited in scope to warrant individual identification. Under each of these course topics, the bulk of the files are categorized as lecture notes. These lecture notes tend to be scripted lectures for the entire semester and appear to have been drafted by Sellars early in his career. The initial lectures often contain many inserted pages and notations, revealing the changing style and theories presented in Sellars's lectures. Furthermore, the lecture notes often contain supplemental items such as bibliographies, handouts, and student enrollment lists. In addition to the lecture notes, this section includes exam files. While the majority of the exams are midterm and final exams, there are also quizzes and other special exams. The remaining files document the required readings assigned by Sellars, and contain either lists of articles or the actual articles placed on reserve at the library for Sellars's students.

The off-campus teaching materials are arranged alphabetically by lecture topic and consist of either a typed or handwritten version of the lectures presented by Sellars at particular institutions. The typed versions often contain notations.

Subseries 3. Dissertations, 1942-1987

Scope and Content Notes:

The items in this subseries consist of presentation copies, working drafts, and published versions of dissertations produced by M.A. and Ph.D. students. In general, these students were either supervised by Sellars or students who based their dissertations on Sellars's philosophy. The arrangement of these dissertations follows the progression of Sellars's employment at the University of Iowa, University of Minnesota, Yale University and the University of Pittsburgh. Under each of these institutional headings, the dissertations are arranged alphabetically by author. Many of these dissertations include multiple successive versions that were given to Sellars for critical commentary. The earlier working drafts may be extensively annotated by Sellars with various suggestions for changes and improvement. There is an additional category of dissertations from other institutions. These dissertations generally represent published dissertations that were either presented to Sellars by the author, since the dissertation centered on Sellars's own work, or, in rare cases, were ordered by Sellars presumably for his own research. Individuals who had extensive interaction with Sellars include Kenneth David Alpern, Pedro Amaral, Bruce Aune, Hector Neri Casteneda, Richard Burian, Richard Creath, and Ruth Garrett Millikan. Other well documented students include Dionysios A. Anapolitanos, Christopher B. Burch, John S. Linnell, George J. Mattey, Jack Norman, Spyros Sakellariadis, and David E. Wojick.

Series IV. Professional Activities, 1935-1989

Scope and Content Notes:

This series documents Sellars' professional activities that are often associated with his academic career, but more clearly represent his contributions to the larger philosophical community. These files are divided into four subseries that highlight Sellars' attendance at conferences and summer institutes, his correspondence with other philosophers, his editorship of Philosophical Studies, and his professional society memberships. Each of these subseries contains extensive scope and content notes.

Subseries 1. Conferences and Summer Institutes, 1953-1988

Scope and Content Notes:

Classified as either conferences or summer institutes, these files document Sellars's attendance of professional gatherings. Under each of these headings, the files are arranged alphabetically by topic. The bulk of the files contain minimal information on the content of the conferences and simply document Sellars's travel accommodations and provide general information on the host institution. However, there are several highly informative files from conferences about the "Concept of Matter," "Mind and Brain," "Philosophy of Language," "Predication," and the "Summer Institute on the History and Philosophy of Science and Mathematics." These more extensive files tend to contain agendas, correspondence, copies of the presented papers, and Sellars's notes on the presentations.

Subseries 2. Correspondence, 1935-1989

Scope and Content Notes:

This subseries is composed of correspondence originating from established or aspiring philosophers, who sought Sellars's expertise. It is subdivided into two categories: correspondence with individuals and correspondence by topic, which are arranged alphabetically. The most informative files in this series are those arranged by individual, which cover a combination of the topics listed below. When considering the correspondence by topic, the most noteworthy files are philosophical debate files, which contain correspondence from individuals who have read Sellars work and either have questions on his philosophy or doubt his approach. These files document the exchange of opinions, which often lead to a clarification of the arguments and clearly establish the fundamental differences in reasoning. The speaking engagement files reveal which institutions invited Sellars to be a speaker, as well as the topics covered by the lectures. The reviews and critiques files generally consist of cover letters, which accompanied manuscripts submitted to Sellars, and to a lesser extent, carbon copies of Sellars's critiques. The recommendations files do not contain Sellars's recommendations for students, since these are located in Section four of Series three. Instead, these recommendation files contain requests from individuals desiring a recommendation, as well as correspondence from institutions seeking Sellars's insight into possible candidates for a particular position. The copy request files contain solicitations for Sellars's offprints and copies of his unpublished articles and lectures.

Subseries 3. Editorship of Philosophical Studies, 1957-1989

Scope and Content Notes:

These files chronicle Sellars establishment and editorship of the journal Philosophical Studies from 1951-1989. These files also document the creation of a related book series, Philosophical Studies Series in Philosophy. Most of the files pertain to the journal and consist of correspondence. Largely composed of cover letters, this correspondence originates from philosophers who are submitting their manuscripts for publication. The cover letters are supplemented by a limited amount of manuscripts, as well as letters of acceptance, rejection notices, or evaluations of the manuscripts. The correspondence with publishers illuminates the process of selecting and arranging published articles, as well as granting permission to reproduce articles. In addition to correspondence the subseries contain a log book of manuscripts as well as referee reports. These reports are especially important, since they provide researchers with succinct evaluations of a philosopher's argument. The files relating to the journal phase out in 1974, when Sellars decided to resign as editor and focus on the development of the book series. The book series correspondence is similar to the article submission correspondence and highlights the types of manuscripts submitted for publication.

Series V. Library

Scope and Content Notes:

This series is composed of 792 annotated books, 144 annotated reprints and off-prints, about 180 annotated journal volumes, which were amassed by Wilfrid Sellars from the 1930s through the 1980s. This series also contains a set of off-prints and books written and retained by Sellars himself. The books and offprints are arranged alphabetically by author and title, while the journals are arranged by journal title and then chronologically by issue. The library contains material spanning the whole of Sellars' career. The topics covered reflect Sellars' professional concerns and therefore contain works on a wide variety of philosophical topics, but emphasize works on logic, epistemology, ontology, scientific realism, philosophy of science, ancient Greek philosophy, and the history of philosophy. Many of these works contain either annotations or dedications. The annotations include notes in the margins of the documents, underlining, and logical notations. The degree and kind of annotation vary greatly; some items are heavily underlined, annotated, and logically notated. Others have only short sections that are heavily marked, or are lightly marked throughout.

A large portion of the library was deaccessioned; the deaccessioned materials include books, journals, and reprints that were not philosophical in nature and lacked any unique markings such as annotations or dedications. These items covered a broad spectrum of Sellars' personal interests and ranged from sports to crosswords, nature, cooking, politics, biographies, history, religion, art, and works of fiction. There is a comprehensive list of all the books initially contained in Sellars's library available for researchers upon request. There is also a list of journal titles found in the Sellars's library.

Subseries 1. Annotated Books, dates

Scope and Content Notes:

This subseries consists of 792 books which have information in the form of annotations, dedications to Sellars, or inclusions. The books are arranged alphabetically by author, editor, or occasionally by translator. The annotations take the form of notes in the margins of the documents, underlining, and logical notations and derivations. The degree and kind of annotation vary greatly; some books are heavily underlined, annotated, and logically notated. Others have only short sections that are heavily marked, or are lightly marked throughout. There are dedications to Sellars from family members or other philosophers, and there are dedications from Wilfrid to his father. There are also books that contained inclusions. These inclusions can consist of fairly extended written commentary. They are sometimes commentary on the book in which they were found, and sometimes on other philosophical or personal topics.

In addition there are a few books that may not be marked, but are on topics that were of particular interest to Sellars. These books contained many slips of paper which acted as book markers. For example, his editions of Kant are included although they are not marked, because they contain hundreds of book markers and show considerable signs of use. In general, the books in this series are books on philosophical topics. They include editions of the works of the central figures in European philosophy such as Hume, Locke, Descartes, Kant, and Russell. Many of these are student editions that he seems to have used during his days at Oxford and Harvard. They are often extensively annotated with both marginal notes and underlining.

A list of annotated books is available.

Subseries 2. Annotated Journals, dates

Scope and Content Notes:

This subseries contains entire journals that feature either dedications or annotations. The journals are almost exclusively concerned with philosophical issues and are arranged alphabetically by journal title. The vast majority of the journals contain some form of annotation. However, there are a few journals that only contain a dedication or an inclusion. The dedications generally consist of a simple salutation to Sellars from the author of an article published in the journal. While a few of the inclusions appear to relate directly to an article or the entire journal, the bulk of the inclusions appear to be unrelated items that were simply used as bookmarks, or were temporarily placed in the journal and forgotten. The annotations vary greatly in substance. Some of the journals only contain one or two markings that appear to have little significance. The remaining journals tend to have one or two articles that are annotated in some fashion. These annotations may include underlined text, symbolic markings in the margins, or some written commentary. In a few instances, the journals are highly annotated. This statement is especially true with the publications The Monist and Synthese. In addition, the annotations in Philosophical Studies tend to be editorial in nature, rather than philosophical.

Subseries 3. Offprints by Sellars, 1947-1982

Scope and Content Notes:

This subseries contains manuscripts published by Sellars between the years 1947 and 1982. The manuscripts are either offprints or reprints from the publisher and contain no unique markings such as annotations or dedications. They are arranged alphabetically by title.

Subseries 4. Annotated Offprints of Other Authors, 1904-1982

Scope and Content Notes:

Written by authors other than Sellars, these offprints date from the 1930s onward, with the exception of those by Bertrand Russell. It appears as though Sellars began amassing these materials as research materials during his graduate education and continued to do so into his professional career. Arranged alphabetically by author, the files contain a combination of publisher offprints and photocopies of published works that are mostly journal articles. However, this section also includes book chapters and excerpted sections. They are strictly philosophical in content and contain annotations by Sellars. The bulk of the annotations simply consist of underlined text that may be accompanied by symbols such as checks, arrows or wavy lines that designate areas of significant interest.

It appears as though the offprints dating from the 1930s and 1940s feature more annotations than the later articles which have more sporadic notations. However, there are several significant exceptions, such as the following: "The Logic of Psychological Concepts" by Gustav Bergmann, "Craig's Theorem, Ramsey-Sentences, and Scientific Instrumentalism" by James Cornman, "Actions, Reasons, and Causes" by Donald Davidson, "Coherence, Certainty, and Epistemic Priority" by Roderick Firth, "Quine on Meaning and Existence" by Gilbert Harman, and "Sellars's Argument for the Inevitability of the Secondary Qualities" by C.A. Hooker.

Series VI. Dictabelts

Scope and Content Notes:

This series is composed of roughly 1,173 dictabelts that contain the oration of Wilfrid Sellars. Most of the dictabelts have labels written on them in chalk pencil. These dictabelts are usually grouped in nested sets and labeled with the same title and a sequential number. The 865 labeled dictabelts fall into several categories: manuscripts, correspondence, miscellaneous, dated and untitled. The dictabelts classified as manuscripts seem to be pre-cursors to articles and lectures, both published and unpublished. The correspondence appears to be pre-cursors to letters Sellars sent to colleagues. The dated and untitled category houses dictabelts that currently cannot be identified. For example, some have only a date label done in chalk, while others have no label whatsoever. The dictabelts preserved all show signs of having been used by Sellars. However, only a small number have been played by the archivists, confirming that at the dictabelts are still in usable condition.

Series VII. Roy Wood Sellars, 1909-1974

Scope and Content Notes:

Roy Wood Sellars (1880-1973) was the father of Wilfrid Stalker Sellars and a notable American philosopher. This series is divided into six subseries that document various aspects of his personal and professional life. The subseries include biographical information, correspondence files, financial records, handwritten notes, manuscripts, and manuscripts by other authors. While these documents provide some information on his personal life, they concentrate on Roy Wood Sellars' contributions to the philosophical community's professional literature. Covering the topics of naturalistic metaphysics, philosophy of mind, materialism, naturalism, secular humanism, socialism, and relativity, this series contains drafts of published and unpublished articles and books, and handwritten notes relating to the formulation of his philosophical ideologies. These materials are further described in the extensive subseries scope and content notes.

Subseries 1. Personal, 1936-1974

Scope and Content Notes:

This subseries highlights RWS's personal life. The Ferris State College file contains newspaper clippings, a diploma and program from the ceremony in which he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws in 1973. The miscellaneous file contains a program from a church service, as well as membership cards, business cards, and identification cards that were removed from a wallet. This section also contains RWS's voided passports and a vaccination report. Additional items included in this subseries are the financial and legal documents relating to the professional pursuits of Roy Wood Sellars, such as a power of attorney document, which legally designates Wilfrid Sellars as the guardian of RWS's affairs. It also contains publication agreements and royalty statements based on RWS's published works.

Subseries 2. Correspondence, 1909-1974

Scope and Content Notes:

The correspondence dates from 1909-1973 and is separated into personal and professional. The personal correspondence contains letters and holiday greetings from friends and family. Researchers may find some significance in the correspondence with Gertrude Mary Sellars, as it provides an interesting perspective on her husband, Wilfrid Sellars. The professional correspondence occurs between RWS and other philosophers. It appears as though many of the letters were written in response to inquiries initially made by RWS during the later part of his life. A few of the professional correspondence files contain manuscripts that were initially sent as enclosures. The "compiled letters" file is interesting as it was assembled by W. Preston Warren and sent to Wilfrid Sellars for safe keeping. This file contains photocopied letters sent to RWS from various philosophers between 1910 and 1965. Some of the correspondents include John Dewey, Donald Williams, Wilmon Sheldon, H. Bergson, George Santayana, Mario Lins, Adolf Meyer, and C. A. Strong, among others.

Researchers wishing to view the correspondence between Roy Wood Sellars and his son, Wilfrid Sellars, should consult the professional correspondence located in series four. All but a few of these letters are written by RWS. The letters cover discussions of philosophical ideas, publication notes, and personal business between father and son. An enclosure to a letter dated June 22, 1970, outlines RWS's philosophical autobiography. Other enclosures include articles written by RWS.

Subseries 3. Handwritten Notes, undated

Scope and Content Notes:

This subseries contains seven notebooks and a file of compiled notes that were originally dispersed throughout the collection. Written by RWS, these notes express his thoughts in varying depths on topics such as biographical remarks, personal notes, and philosophical musings. The loose handwritten notes contain fragments of ideas and notes in outline form, while the notebooks highlight a broader range of ideas. The first notebook examines relative motion, realism, and secular humanism. The second notebook mainly deals with causality, determinism, notes from "Soviet Studies in Philosophy," and religion. The third contains thoughts on relativity, American global policy, economics, and Marx. The fourth examines the thoughts of other philosophers' (including, Toynbee, Sartre, Bernstein, and Robespierre) and RWS's own thoughts on democracy. The fifth notebook begins with Greek philosophy, and later remarks on human consciousness, referential thinking and problems, and perceptual experience. The sixth notebook includes RWS's musings on topics of matter, materialism, American perception, causality, determinism, dialectical materialism, and Marxism. Also included in this notebook are references to his article, "In What Sense Is Valuation Objective in Import?" The seventh notebook addresses RWS's ideas about agential level of causality, double-knowledge, relative motion and Einstein.

Subseries 4. Manuscripts and Offprints, 1933-1973

Scope and Content Notes:

This subseries contains published and unpublished manuscripts, as well as offprints penned by Roy Wood Sellars. This material largely dates from the later part of his life. The manuscripts are arranged alphabetically by title. While the bulk of these files simply consist of manuscript drafts, several also include enclosures. Some files contain related articles ("Discussion on Frankena"), limited correspondence, and reviews or notes ( Lending a Hand to Hylas, and Reflections of American Philosophy from Within). Researchers may take particular interest in the Framework of Philosophy and Its Burden files, as they include an unpublished book by RWS that includes previously unpublished and revised articles on topics ranging from theories of value and relativity, perception, choice, emergence, religion, pragmatism, dialectical materialism, and social patterns. The full-length manuscripts are augmented by manuscript fragments that are arranged alphabetically by topic. In addition to the manuscripts, this section also contains offprints dating from 1938 to 1965. These offprints contain succinct dedications to his son, Wilfrid Sellars and are filed chronologically.
