Wittgenstein and Sellars on Thinking

Stefan Brandt

Abstract



I present Ludwig Wittgenstein’s criticisms of the idea that meaningful linguistic
utterances have to be accompanied by mental acts of thinking their sense and the
idea that thinking occurs in a language of thought consisting of mental signs. I
try to show that Wilfrid Sellars developed an account of thinking on the model
of language which can accommodate Wittgenstein’s challenges.
