Classical American philosophy has both contemporary and historical significance. It provides direct, imaginative, and critical insights into our contemporary global society, its massive and pressing problems, and its possibilities for real improvement. Pragmatism and Classical American Philosophy, 2/e, provides the resources necessary to understand and act on these insights. Revised and greatly expanded in this second edition, it offers a comprehensive account of classical American philosophy and pragmatism, presenting the essential writings of all the major figures of the tradition: Charles S. Peirce, William James, Josiah Royce, George Santayana, John Dewey, and George Herbert Mead. It also incorporates illuminating introductory essays by leading scholars in the field, providing biographical and cultural context as well as original critical and interpretive perspectives.
This new edition adds several new selections by, and about, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Jane Addams, Borden Parker Bowne, Alain Locke, and John Herman Randall, Jr. These essays situate pragmatism and classical American philosophy in their wider American philosophical contexts of transcendentalism, feminism and writings by American women, personalism and idealism, African-American thought, and naturalism and realism. The volume also includes up-to-date suggestions for further reading that are useful for both beginning and advanced readers.
Pragmatism and Classical American Philosophy, 2/e, is ideal for courses in American philosophy, pragmatism, American thought and culture, and American intellectual history, and also serves as essential reading for anyone interested in American philosophy.

Review:

"The new edition of Pragmatism and Classical American Philosophy will be much appreciated by teachers of American philosophy courses. We now have in one volume a broad range of excellently chosen materials and well-written introductory essays that we have needed for some time."--Michael
Eldridge, University of North Carolina, Charlotte

"What a fine collection! The essays chosen from the canon are perfect. . . .The feminist and African American sections are real assets and move toward making this subject more truly representative of American culture."--Claudia Card, University of Wisconsin, Madison

"Now in its second edition, with 'Pragmatism' added to the title and expanded in scope to include Emerson and some of the contemporary thought that helps put classical pragmatism into context, Stuhr's anthology is sure to become a classic in its own right....The best collection of its
kind."--Peirce Project Newsletter
