Fishman, Daniel B. The Case for Pragmatic Psychology. New York: New York University Press, 1999. From catalog: Bridging the gap between the traditional and the novel, Daniel B. Fishman proposes an invigorated, hybrid model for the practice of psychology-a radical, pragmatic reinvention of psychology based on databases of rigorous, solution-focused case studies. In The Case for Pragmatic Psychology, Fishman demonstrates how pragmatism returns psychology to a focus on contextualized knowledge about particular individuals, groups, organizations, and communities in specific situations, sensitive to the complexities and ambiguities of the real world. Fishman fleshes out his theory by applying pragmatic psychology to two contemporary psychosocial dilemmas -- the controversies surrounding the "psychotherapy crisis" generated by the growth of managed care, and the heated culture wars over educational reform.

Gale, Richard. The Divided Self of William James. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1999. From publisher: This book focuses on the multiple directions in which James's philosophy moves and the inevitable contradictions that arise as a result. The first part of the book explores a range of James's doctrines in which he refuses to privilege any particular perspective: ethics, belief, free will, truth and meaning. The second part of the book turns to those doctrines where James privileges the perspective of mystical experience. Gale then shows how the relativistic tendencies can be reconciled with James's account of mystical experience.  Reviewed by Ellen Kappy Suckiel, TPS 36.1 (Winter 2000): 161-168.

Howe, Susan. Peirce-Arrow. New York: New Directions, 1999. From catalog: Susan Howe's newest book of poems takes as its shooting off point the figure of Charles S. Peirce, the allusive late nineteenth-century philosopher-scientist and founder of pragmatism, a man always on the periphery of the academic and social establishments yet intimately conjoined with them by birth and upbringing. Through Peirce and his wife Juliette, a lady of shadowy antecedents, Howe creates an intriguing nexus that explores the darker, melancholy sides of the fin-de-sicle Anglo-American intellegentsia.

Eldridge, Michael. Transforming Experience: John Dewey's Cultural Instrumentalism. Nashville, Tenn: Vanderbilt University Press, 1998.

For Dewey, philosophy's primary role is to develop this tool to better society and its members. In particular, Eldridge shows how this central aim of Dewey's philosophy applies specifically to the political and religious aspect of human experience. Reviewed by William J.

By comparing and contrasting Dewey's thought with that of Socrates, Fott convincingly casts doubt on claims that Dewey offers a defensible middle ground between moral absolutism and moral relativism.

Joas, Hans. The Creativity of Action. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1997. Catalog note: Based on Joas's celebrated study of George Herbert Mead, this work reevaluates the contribution of American pragmatism and European philosophical anthropology to theories of action in the social sciences. Joas argues for adding a third model of action to the two predominant models of rational and normative action -- one that emphasizes the creative character of human action. This model encompasses the other two, allowing for a more comprehensive theory of action.

Burke, Thomas. Dewey's New Logic: A Reply to Russell. Chicago: University of Chicago, 1994. From publisher: This book analyzes the debate between Russell and Dewey that followed the 1938 publication of Dewey's Logic: The Theory of Inquiry, and argues that, despite Russell's early resistance, Dewey's logic is surprisingly relevant to recent developments in philosophy and cognitive science. Since Dewey's logic focuses on natural language in everyday experience, it poses a challenge to Russell's formal syntactic conception of logic. Tom Burke demonstrates that Russell misunderstood crucial aspects of Dewey's theory - his ideas on propositions, judgments, inquiry, situations, and warranted assertibility - and contends that logic today has progressed beyond Russell and is approaching Dewey's broader perspective. Burke relates Dewey's logic to issues in epistemology, philosophy of language and psychology, computer science, and formal semantics.

Hausman, Carl R. Charles S. Peirce's Evolutionary Philosophy. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1993.  From publisher: This book is a systematic introduction to the philosophy of Charles S. Peirce. It focuses on four of Peirce's fundamental conceptions: pragmatism and Peirce's development of it into what he called "pragmaticism"; his theory of signs; his phenomenology; and his theory that continuity is of prime importance for philosophy. The author argues that at the center of Peirce's philosophical project is a unique form of metaphysical realism, whereby both continuity and evolutionary change are necessary for our understanding of experience. In his final chapter Professor Hausman applies this version of realism to current controversies between anti-realists and anti-idealists. Peirce's views are compared with those of such present-day figures as Davidson, Putnam, and Rorty.  Reviewed by Robert Reuter, SAAPN 69 (October 1994): 7-8; Sandra B.

Paringer, William A. John Dewey and the Paradox of Liberal Reform. Albany: State University of New York Press, 1990. From publisher: This book provides a fresh critique of John Dewey and the progressive tradition and warns against the superficial renaissance of Deweyan philosophy present in many of today's modern liberal educational reform movements. Challenging the four pillars of Dewey's pragmatism -- science, nature, democracy, experience -- Paringer argues for a critical or radical education praxis that more sensitively comes to grips with the difficulties of the nuclearized, postmodern world.
