From the Publisher“With this volume Margolis, Shook, and their collaborators celebrate the return of pragmatism to center stage of professional philosophy. Its 38 essays provide rich insights into the prospects of pragmatism as a family of methods poised to address twenty-first-century problems. Their volume is truly authoritative: its list of contributors reads like an honor roll of the field.”
Larry A. Hickman, Southern Illinois University
“This is a splendid collection of articles about the major figures of the pragmatic tradition that also exhibits the vitality and diversity of this living tradition. Essential reading for anyone interested in the rich history, lively present debates, and promising future of pragmatic themes.”
Richard J. Bernstein, New School for Social Research
“Unusually for an encyclopedic account, A Companion to Pragmatism is not afraid to adopt a particular interpretive approach. The introduction draws challenging conclusions about the relative importance of Peirce, James, and Dewey, but both the major figures covered and the themes developed in the book expand far beyond this original triumvirate and demonstrate the vitality and expansiveness of pragmatist philosophy.”
Charlene Haddock Seigfried, Purdue University
"The essays, though assuming some acquaintance with the problems and history of philosophy, are clearly written and use a minimum of jargon. A brief but excellent introduction . . . and a good set of subject and name indexes complete the scholarly apparatus. Recommended."
