In this remarkable book, Joseph Margolis, one of America's leading and most celebrated philosophers, examines the relationship between two apparently contradictory philosophical tendencies - realism and relativism. In order to examine the relationship between the two, Margolis establishes a taxomony of different kinds of realism and different kinds of relativism. Drawing on both the analytic and Continental traditions, he examines (from a pragmatic point of view) the various relationships between these two tendencies in the light of two major developments in modern philosophy - the concern for praxis and the concern for historicity.

Twenty years after it was first published to great acclaim, Margolis has updated Pragmatism Without Foundations in the light of his most recent work and the development of pragmatism in the intellectual world. This second edition includes an updated preface and a brand new epilogue addressing these developments and their implications for his earlier work.

About the Author:

Joseph Margolis is Laura H. Carnell Professor of Philosophy at Temple University. His most recent publications include Re-inventing Pragmatism (2002), The Unraveling fo Scientism (2003), Moral Philosophy after 9/11 (2004) and Introduction to Philosophical Problems (2006).

From Library Journal:

Protagoreanism, the contention that whatever is affirmed is both true and false, and incommensurability, the contention that there is no common conceptual ground for adjudicating competing claims, undermine realism, the belief that we can learn truths about what we take to be the real world. Margolis wants to retain both realism and a third sort of relativism, which he believes avoids the errors of the other two. In his view, judgments that would standardly count as contradictories are not incompatible because logically weaker truth-values are applied to them by relativizing them to evidence at a given time. Margolis ties this relativism to methodological and substantive considerations about the world we investigate. This wide-ranging book will stimulate professional philosophers.
