"Sellars' s argument in EPM is enormously rich, subtle, and compelling.
It is also, for the uninitiated, extraordinarily dense.
Willem deVries and Timm Triplett's comprehensive commentary Knowledge, Mind, and the Given provides a much needed guide.
Beginning with a general overview to introduce some main themes and difficulties, deVries and Triplett take the reader step by step through the sixteen parts of the essay, providing at each stage necessary background, illuminating connections, and insightful clarifications of the main lines of argument...deVries and Triplett have written a fine introduction to Sellars's most important work." --Danielle Macbeth, The Philosophical Review
