Description

In "The Community Reconstructs", James Campbell explores the Pragmatists' contributions to American social thought, drawing upon the writings of William James, John Dewey, George Herbert Mead, James Hayden Tufts, and their various critics. He explores the Pragmatic analysis of society's potential for ongoing intelligent inquiry and cooperative evaluation to address social ills. Campbell also considers the nature of political language, the relative importance of the moral and political values of liberty and equality, and the vital role of commitment to the life of a democratic community.show more
