Description

The Pragmatic Turn in Philosophy explores how the various discursive strategies of old and new pragmatisms are related, and what their pertinence is to the relationship between pragmatism and philosophy as a whole. The contributors bridge the divide between analytic and continental philosophy through a transcontinental desire to work on common problems in a common philosophical language. Irrespective of which side of the divide one stands on, pragmatic philosophy has gained ascendancy over the traditional concerns of a representationalist epistemology that has determined much of the intellectual and cultural life of modernity. This book details how contemporary philosophy will emerge from this recognition and that, in fact, this emergence is already underway.

Review quote

"This is an engaging book, full of insights and extremely useful ways of framing, then addressing, important questions. It adds something of intellectual importance not only to the field of philosophy, but also to a number of adjacent fields (e.g., social theory, literary theory, and cultural studies)."
