Pragmatism

Three Volume Set
Edited by:


June 2004 | 1 048 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
The dramatic resurgence of American Pragmatism was one of the most important intellectual developments in the Twentieth Century. As the influence of this revitalised movement continues to spread across a variety of disciplines ranging from law to literary theory, the time is ripe for a considered reassessment of both its origins in the works of Charles Peirce, William James and John Dewey and its later revival in the hands of thinkers such as Richard Rorty and Hilary Putnam.

This three-volume collection gathers together the necessary material for just such an 'assessment'. As such, it will an invaluable research tool for scholars and students who need to understand the significance of Pragmatism's unique place in the history of ideas.

Alan Malachowski is an Honorary Lecturer in Philosophy at the Department of Philosophy, University of East Anglia.
