Philosophy, Experience, and Community
John J. Stuhr - Author

Drawing on the work of popular American writers, American philosophers, and Continental thinkers, this book provides a new interpretation of pragmatism and American philosophy.

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)
Dialectics (June 1977)
A Controversy-Oriented Approach to the Theory of Knowledge
Nicholas Rescher - Author

This book explores a disputational approach to inquiry. Such a focus on disputation is useful because it exhibits epistemological process at work in a setting of socially conditioned interactions. This socially oriented perspective reflects the anti-Cartesian animus of the dialectical approach to epistemology. It strives to avert the baneful influence of the egocentric orientation of recent approaches in the theory of knowledge.

The tradition...(Read More)
