This chapter examines how both Husserl and Wilfrid Sellars wanted to realize their ideals using a certain type of history of knowledge. It argues that their conceptions are comparable because they both use similar conceptual dichotomies to characterize the difference between scientific and nonscientific knowledge. It also criticizes these attempts as not doing justice to the complexity of the social and emotional setting in which knowledge develops. Both Husserl and Sellars were among the first to see something that has only recently begun to preoccupy philosophers generally, namely that a complete account of knowledge must make room for both objective and subjective knowledge and experience, as well as resolving the deep tension that always exists between the two.
