Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"The work is useful, not only for its exploration of the theme of constructive postmodernism, but also for its presentation of the thought of some of the most important nineteenth and twentieth century philosophers. Each thinker is fascinating in his own right, and the chapters bring out intriguing, provocative aspects of the ideas of each with exceptional force and clarity.

"The topic of constructive postmodernism is highly significant, not only because postmodernism is the focus of much current discussion in the humanities and social sciences, but also because it provides a way to focus on some of the deepest questions in the history of philosophical and religious thought." -- Donald A. Crosby, Colorado State University

In presenting Peirce, James, Bergson, Whitehead, and Hartshorne as members of a common and distinctively postmodern trajectory, this book casts the thought of each of them in a new light. It also suggests a new direction for the philosophical community as a whole, now that the various forms of modern philosophy, and even the deconstructive form of postmodern philosophy, are widely perceived to be dead-ends. This new option offers the possibility that philosophy may recover its role as critic and guide within the more general culture, a recovery that is desperately needed in these perilous times.
