Gale, Richard M. John Dewey's quest for unity: the journey of a promethean mystic. Amherst, N.Y.: Prometheus Books, 2009. From publisher: Gale argues that what makes Dewey's philosophy unique and exciting is his attempt to synthesise what Gale calls "Prometheanism" with Dewey's unique brand of mysticism. As Gale points out, Dewey celebrated human beings as Promethean creators of meaning and value through the active control of nature. But at the same time, Dewey created a synthesis whereby a sort of mystical unifying experience results from the subject's active engagement with the environment through inquiry. Paradoxically, the active subject becomes passive in this synthesis to achieve unification with a shared spiritual reality, which Dewey expressed as a "common faith". Gale goes on to show that for Dewey artistic creation is the paradigm of this synthesis.

Joslin, Katherine. Jane Addams: A Writer's Life. Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 2009. From publisher: Joslin examines Addams's rejection of scholarly writing in favor of a synthesis of fictional and analytical prose that appealed to a wider audience. Joslin traces Addams's style from her early works to her modernist and experimental last books, placing Addams in the context of other Chicago writers including Theodore Dreiser, Upton Sinclair, Harriet Monroe, Frank Norris and James T. Farrell. Joslin's close readings showcase Addams's distinguishing literary devices, such as using stories about people rather than sociological argument to make moral points. As Joslin pursues the argument that Addams's power as a public figure stemmed from the success of her books and essays, Addams herself emerges as a literary woman.

Baert, Patrick. Philosophy of the Social Sciences: Towards Pragmatism. Cambridge: Polity Press, 2005. From publisher: The book provides an in-depth discussion of the contributions by Durkheim, Weber, Popper, critical realism, critical theory and pragmatism to the philosophy of the social sciences. It advances a new approach to this discipline, one that is indebted to American pragmatism. According to this perspective, methodology ties in with cognitive interests. The answer to the question 'how shall we conduct research?' depends to a large extent on what we want to achieve in the first place. Most contributions to the philosophy of social sciences assume that social research is a descriptive or explanatory endeavour. The pragmatist perspective, advocated in the book, emphasizes that social research can aim at other objectives.

Efron, Arthur. Experiencing Tess of the d' Urbervilles: A Deweyan Account. Amsterdam: Rodopi, 2005. From publisher: This book interprets Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles with the openness toward experience recommended by John Dewey's Art as Experience. The characters of Tess are considered as real people with sexual bodies and complex minds. Efron identifies the "experience blockers" that the critical tradition has stumbled upon, and defends Hardy's involvement in telling his story. Efron offers a new way of evaluating literature inspired by Dewey's pragmatist aesthetics. Reviewed by C. S.

Rockwell, W. Teed. Neither Brain nor Ghost: A Nondualist Alternative to the Mind-Brain Identity Theory. Cambridge, Mass.: MIT Press, 2005. From publisher: Rockwell rejects both dualism and the mind-brain identity theory. He proposes instead that mental phenomena emerge not merely from brain activity but from an interacting nexus of brain, body, and world. The mind can be seen not as an organ within the body, but as a "behavioral field" that fluctuates within this brain-body-world nexus. If we reject the dominant form of the mind-brain identity theory-which Rockwell calls "Cartesian materialism" (distinct from Daniel Dennett's concept of the same name)-and accept this new alternative, then many philosophical and scientific problems can be solved. Other philosophers have flirted with these ideas, including Dewey, Heidegger, Putnam, Millikan, and Dennett. But Rockwell goes further than these tentative speculations and offers a detailed alternative to the dominant philosophical view, applying pragmatist insights to contemporary scientific and philosophical problems.

Bridge, Gary. Reason in the City of Difference: Pragmatism, Communicative Action and Contemporary Urbanism. London and New York: Routledge, 2004. From author: In the modernist city rationality ruled and subsumed difference in a logic of identity. In the postmodern city, reason is abandoned for an endless play of difference. Reason in the City of Difference poses an alternative to these extremes by drawing on classical American philosophical pragmatism (and its contemporary developments in feminism and the philosophy of communication) to explore the possibilities of a strengthening and deepening of reason in the contemporary city.

Freadman, Anne. The Machinery of Talk: Charles Peirce and the Sign Hypothesis. Stanford, Cal.: Stanford University Press, 2004. From publisher: This radical reevaluation of one of the foundational figures of semiotics presents Peirce as the theorist of the "machinery of talk" rather than of the mind and its contents. The book is a genealogy of Peirce's writings on signs that seeks to account for the changes displayed across forty years of his work. Freadman introduces the postulate of "genre" in order to argue that the transformation of materials from one genre in and by the objectives of another can account for the modifications in sign theory observable through the course of Peirce's career. The Machinery of Talk engages on a theoretical level with general issues in semiotics, taking Peirce's writings as a case study through which to investigate the adequacy of a theory of signs to account for the way "talk" works. It finds that "the sign" is inadequate without the accompanying postulate of "genre."

Grange, Joseph. John Dewey, Confucius, and Global Philosophy.

Grange concentrates on the major themes of experience, felt intelligence, and culture to make the connections between these two giants of Western and Eastern thought. He explains why the Chinese call Dewey 'a second Confucius,' and deepens our understanding of Confucius's concepts of the way (dao) of human excellence (ren). The important dimensions of American and Chinese cultural philosophy are welded into an argument that calls for the liberation of what is finest in both traditions.

MacGilvray, Eric A. Reconstructing Public Reason. Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press, 2004. From the publisher: MacGilvray argues that we should shift our attention away from the problem of identifying uncontroversial public ends in the present and toward the problem of evaluating potentially controversial public ends through collective inquiry over time. Rather than ask ourselves which public ends are justified, we must instead decide which public ends we should seek to justify. Reconstructing Public Reason offers a fundamental rethinking of the nature and aims of liberal toleration, and of the political implications of pragmatic philosophy. It also provides fresh interpretations of founding pragmatic thinkers such as John Dewey and William James, and of leading contemporary figures such as John Rawls and Richard Rorty.

Hildebrand, David. Beyond Realism and Antirealism: John Dewey and the Neopragmatists. Nashville, Tenn.: Vanderbilt University Press, 2003. From publisher: Current debates between realists and antirealists (as well as objectivists and relativists) are similar to early 20th century debates between realists and idealists that Pragmatism addressed extensively. Despite their debts to Dewey, the Neopragmatists are reenacting realist and idealist stands in their debate over realism, thus giving life to something shown fruitless by earlier Pragmatists. What is absent from the Neopragmatist's position is precisely what makes Pragmatism enduring: namely, its metaphysical conception of experience and a practical starting point for philosophical inquiry that such experience dictates. Pragmatism cannot take the "linguistic turn" insofar as that turn mandates a theoretical starting point. While Pragmatism's view of truth is perspectival, it is nevertheless not a relativism. Pace Rorty, Pragmatism need not be hostile to metaphysics; indeed, it demonstrates how pragmatic instrumentalism and metaphysics are complementary.

Posner, Richard A. Law, Pragmatism, and Democracy. Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 2003. From publisher: Posner argues that democracy is best viewed as a competition for power by means of regular elections. Citizens should not be expected to play a significant role in making complex public policy regarding, say, taxes or missile defense. The great advantage of democracy is not that it is the rule of the wise or the good but that it enables stability and orderly succession in government and limits the tendency of rulers to enrich or empower themselves to the disadvantage of the public. Posner's theory steers between political theorists' concept of deliberative democracy on the left and economists' public-choice theory on the right. It makes a significant contribution to the theory of democracy -- and to the theory of law as well -- by showing that the principles that inform Schumpeterian democratic theory also inform the theory and practice of adjudication. The book argues for law and democracy as twin halves of a pragmatic theory of American government.

From catalog: Tapping archival sources and Dewey's extensive correspondence, Dalton reveals that Dewey had close personal and intellectual ties to scientists and scholars that were influential in forming the mature expression of his thought. Dalton traces the not-always-smooth pathways that led Dewey to shed his Calvinist upbringing to transform Hegelian phenomenology into a science of mind, to challenge Freudian psychology, and to articulate the central concerns of naturalism and pragmatism. Dewey's relationships with F. M. Alexander, Henri Matisse, Niels Bohr, Myrtle McGraw, and Lawrence K. Frank, among others, show how Dewey drew upon these collaborations to disperse pragmatism throughout American thought and culture.

In The Lesbian Index, Kim Emery offers the pragmatic semiotics of C. S. Peirce as a way out of this divide. In particular, she introduces Peirce's notion of indexicality, which marks the intersection of the historical world with the conceptual one, as a useful theoretical tool for tracing the development of lesbian existence and experience.

Feldman, Jessica R. Victorian Modernism: Pragmatism and the Varieties of Aesthetic Experience. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 2002. From publisher: Feldman sheds a pragmatist light on the relation between the Victorian age and Modernism by dislodging truistic notions of Modernism as an art of crisis, rupture, elitism and loss. She examines aesthetic sites of Victorian Modernism - including workrooms, parlours, friendships, and family relations as well as printed texts and paintings - as they develop through interminglings and continuities as well as gaps and breaks. Examining the works of John Ruskin (art critic and social thinker), Dante Gabriel Rossetti (poet and painter), Augusta Evans (best-selling domestic novelist,) and William James (philosopher and psychologist), Feldman relates them to selected twentieth-century creations. She reveals these sentimental, domestic and sublime works to be pragmatist explorations of aesthetic realms.

He develops a positive theory of personal freedom derived from a concept of good rebellion. Individuals who rebel against an oppressive society for the sake of an objective good furnish the most conspicuous example of human freedom in action. The goal is to articulate, in Neo-Aristotelian communitarian, and pragmatist terms, a defensible moral theory of personal freedom.

Jackson, Phillip W. John Dewey and the Philosopher's Task. New York: Teachers College Press, 2002. From publisher: By analyzing Dewey's attempts to revise the introduction to one of his most important books, Experience and Nature, Jackson explores Dewey's efforts (both intellectually and emotionally) to explain the all-important relationship between philosophy and human affairs. This story of Dewey's life-long struggle with a complex philosophical question (one that continues to challenge philosophers today) is also the story of Jackson's own struggle to understand Dewey's quest.

Johansen, Jorgen Dines. Literary Discourse: A Semiotic-Pragmatic Approach to Literature. Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 2002. From publisher: Using the semiotic theory of the American philosopher Charles S. Peirce as the principal influence, Johansen applies psychoanalysis, psychology, literary hermeneutics, literary history, Habermasian communication, and discourse theory to literature, and, in the process, redefines it. The text is divided into three major sections: an introductory exposition of the Peircean sign concept and the concept of discourse; an extensive discussion of various apexes of the semiotic pyramid; and a semiotic analysis of the hermeneutic problems of interpreting literature based on the theoretical work of Peirce, Habermas, and Gadamer.

Gelpi, Donald L. The Gracing of Human Experience: Rethinking the Relationship between Nature and Grace. Collegeville, Minn.: The Liturgical Press, 2001. Contents: This study ponders different ways Christian thinkers understood humanity in its relationship to divine grace. It names fallacies which have in the past skewed theological understanding of that relationship. It argues that the philosophy of Charles Sanders Peirce avoided those same fallacies and provides a novel frame of reference for rethinking the theology of grace. The author shows how insights of other American philosophers flesh out undeveloped aspects of Peirce's thought. He formulates a metaphysics of experience derived from his philosophical analysis. Finally, he develops an understanding of supernatural grace as the transmutation and transvaluation of human experience.

Hester, D. Micah. Community as Healing: Pragmatist Ethics in Medical Encounters. Lanham, Md.: Rowman and Littlefield, 2001. From catalog: The brief history of 20th century bioethics has been dominated by discussions of principles and appeals to autonomy that both divorce theory from practice and champion a notion of the individual as prior to and isolated from society. Pragmatism, on the other hand, has long sought to reconstruct ethical thought with the belief that distinctions between theory and practice, individual and society are not a priori starting points but purposeful developments of inquiry. Using insights from classic pragmatism, The author proposes reconstructive accounts of physician-patient relationships resulting in an emphasis on aiding the process of meaningful/significant living for all individuals involved in medical encounters. William James, John Dewey, and George Herbert Mead, among others, provide discussions of human relationships which accentuate the situatedness of problems and solutions and stress the need for building shared experience in order to develop both self and community. With an insistence on a recognition of a functional concept of the self (or "self as social product"), my pragmatic position illuminates the integration of self with the community and leads to a need to develop new practices in the medical encounter based on an attitude of community as healing.

Sobrinho, Blasco José. Signs, Solidarities, and Sociology: Charles S. Peirce and the Pragmatics of Globalization. Lanham, Md: Rowman and Littlefield, 2001. From catalog: Signs, Solidarties, & Sociology addresses the formation and fragmentation of identity in today's postmodern world. Informed by the conceptual convergence in the theories of Durkheim, Peirce, Mead, and Lacan, this book surveys the range of twentieth-century sociology to deconstruct those favored nostrums of subjective meaning, personal power and autonomous self-hood that comprise its semantics of agency. Revealed beneath this semantic screen is the triad of pragmatic codes -- premodern affiliation, modern calibration, and postmodern globalization -- that govern the social construction of the self. While the ill-comprehended confluence of these three signification codes in the present world situation can indeed fragment personal identity, their formal structural linkages, as shown in this book, may inform a truly postmodern, globally applicable, science of culture.

In so doing, it uncovers important areas of common ground between hermeneutical and pragmatist philosophy. Paul Fairfield defends a "practice-immanent" method of theorizing, which is indebted to both traditions and aims to explicitly articulate the spontaneously emergent constitutional dynamics of social practices rather than continue the project of transcendental theory construction.

Judicial review, he claims, operates as a mechanism to allow "second thought," or principled reflection, on the values of the wider culture. Without this revolutionary function, American democracy would be left without an effective institutional means to formulate the community's considered judgments about good government and individual rights.

Based on the proceedings of an international workshop held at Columbia University under the auspices of the Buell center for the Study of American Architecture in spring 2000, a preamble to the much-ballyhooed conference at the Museum of Modern Art in November, 2000, the contributions traverse a set of burning questions about the future, ranging from the relationship between art and experience to the impact of new technologies on human consciousness, from transformations in everyday life to problems of public space, and from the destiny of the nation-state to emergent forms of transnationalism.

Perlman, Mark. Conceptual Flux - Mental Representation, Misrepresentation, and Concept Change. Dordrecht: Kluwer, 2000. From catalog: The problem of misrepresentation is one of the central issues in contemporary philosophy of mind. Here, Mark Perlman criticizes the way all contemporary theories of mental representation seek to account for misrepresentation, concluding that it cannot be explained naturistically. Perlman formulates a naturalistic theory of representation that reluctantly accepts the unfortunate conclusion that there is no misrepresentation. He adds a pragmatic theory of content, which explains apparent misrepresentation as concept change. Mental representations can be good or bad in specific contexts and for specific purposes, but their correctness is not a matter of truth and falsity. The pragmatic approach to mental content has implications for epistemology, theories of truth, metaphysics, psychology, and AI (specifically connectionist networks).

From catalog: Wilshire connects the work of such thinkers as Thoreau, Emerson, Dewey, and James with Native American beliefs and practices. His search is not for exact parallels, but rather for fundamental affinities between the equally "organismic" thought systems of indigenous peoples and classic American philosophers. Wilshire gives particular emphasis to the affinities between Black Elk's view of the hoop of the world and Emerson's notion of horizon, and also between a shaman's healing practices and James's ideas of pure experience, willingness to believe, and a pluralistic universe. As these connections come into focus, the book shows how European phenomenology was inspired and influenced by the classic American philosophers, whose own work reveals the inspiration and influence of indigenous thought.

Die Beiträge des Bandes zeigen auf, welch einzigartige Möglichkeit der Peircesche Ansatz bietet, eine neue Art von übergängen zwischen Philosophie, Semiotik und Einzeldisziplinen (u. a.
