Charles Peirce's Pragmatic Pluralism
Charles Peirce's Pragmatic Pluralism (October 1994)
Sandra B. Rosenthal - Author

"I am impressed with the author's adept way of interweaving the diverse threads of Peirce's thought into a coherent thesis: underlying Peirce's idealism, realism, anti-nominalism, phenomenology, metaphysical categories is a commitment to pluralism. This is both an interesting and original way to address Peirce's philosophy." -- Carl R. Hausman, Penn State

"I like the force and subtlety with which Rosenthal makes her case for Peirce's pragma...(Read More)

P. Becker, Parsons, Zna...(Read More)
Dyke Ideas
Dyke Ideas (March 1994)
Process, Politics, Daily Life
Joyce Trebilcot - Author

Dyke Ideas is a passionate and insightful contribution to lesbian philosophy. The main value is wimmin--women separate from men and men's inventions. "Craziness," guilt, competition, sex, and other topics are explored in ways that reject male values and move toward wimmin-identified cultures.

Method is central. The authoritarian, God's-eye stance typical of academic writing is disavowed in favor of an approach that denies that others "...(Read More)

The contributors to this book respond to different aspect...(Read More)

Pragmatic Essays after Dewey

"This is a near uniformly excellent collection of essays, which does more than merely interpret classical American philosophy but brings that tradition t...(Read More)

The freshness and combination of philosophy and poetry make it original, bold, and gentle." -- Jacob Needleman

"This is a book of remarkable tenderness and depth. It explores through the usually unnotic...(Read More)
Reinhold Niebuhr and John Dewey
Reinhold Niebuhr and John Dewey (April 1993)
An American Odyssey
Daniel F. Rice - Author

Reinhold Niebuhr and John Dewey frequently have been identified as the most influential American philosophers of their respective times. Although their direct contact in print and in political action was marginal, their substantive conflict over such issues as religion, naturalism, the liberal tradition, and democracy both reflected and shaped much of America's inner dialogue from 1932 to mid-century and beyond. In this intriguing book, Daniel Ric...(Read More)
