Harrelson on Brandom and the historiography of philosophy

There’s a great paper by Kevin J. Harrelson in the latest issue of the British Journal of the History of Philosophy which argues that the arguments Robert Brandom has put forward in defence of the ‘presentism’ of his own accounts of philosophy’s ‘mighty dead’ can be marshalled as arguments in favour of ‘contextualist’ history of philosophy. Worth a read!
