The American Pragmatists PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The American Pragmatists free pdf Cheryl Misak presents a history of the great American philosophical tradition of pragmatism, from its inception in the Metaphysical Club of the 1870s to the present day. This ambitious new account identifies the connections between traditional American pragmatism and contemporary philosophy and argues that the most defensible version of pragmatism - roughly, that of Peirce, Lewis, and Sellars - must be seen and recovered as an important part of the analytic tradition.
