In this thesis, I explore the philosophy of Wilfrid Sellars (1912-1989). The American philosopher has been, and remains, an influence in various branches within contemporary philosophy due to his critique of foundationalist ideas. Despite the title of my thesis being ‘Stereoscopic vision in Wilfrid Sellars´s thought: ontological approaches through neurosciences and their manifestations within contemporary art practices’, my aim has not only been to focus on his theory, but also to conduct a deep inquiry into the current pragmatic application of his ideas within the field of neuroscience and their manifestation within the framework of contemporary art.
