In Sellar’s Empiricism and the Philosophy of Mind. The argument against the Myth of the Given depends his account of observational experience. On the one hand, as McDowell points out (contra Brandom), such an account depends on the Myth of Jones. On the other hand, as Brandom claims (contra McDowell), the "dénouement" of the Myth of Jones must be interpreted in terms of the so-called "two-ply account" of observational reports. Since such an account fails, the Myth of Jones, considered as an argument in narrative form, is a bad argument. Thus Sellars’s argument against the Myth of the Given is invalid.
