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 The copy request files contain solicitations for Sellars's offprints and copies of his unpublished articles and lectures.
