'I have no doubt at all, that if philosophy is to prosper in the coming decades, it will have to treat with great seriousness that splendid seriousness that splendid body of philosophical writing of which the essays in this volume constitute one major part'. from the Foreword by Alasdair MacIntyre When historians of philosophy turn to the work of distinguished philosopher Frederick L. Will, Pragmatism and Realism will be an important part of the discussion. In this collection of nine essays, Will demonstrates that a social account of human knowledge is consistent with, and ultimately requires, realism. A timely contribution to the current debate, the book culminates in a naturalistic account of the generation, assessment, and revision of cognitive, moral and social norms. It is written clearly enough for undergraduates, and includes a critical introduction by the editor discussing the bearing of Will's views on current debates among analytic epistemologists, philosophers of science, and moral theorists.

About the Author:

Frederick L. Will is professor emeritus of philosophy at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign, and the author of Beyond Deduction and Induction and Justification. Kenneth R. Westphal is associate professor at the University of Philosophy at the University of New Hampshire and the author of Hegel's Epistemological Realism.

Review:

Frederick L. Will's essay present a fresh approach that dissolves this dilemma in a way that is stimulating and liberating. (James D. Wallace, University of Illinois, UrbanaChampaign)

This testament is an indispensable aid to self-understanding for American philosophers of all persuasions. (Jim Tiles, University of Hawai'i at Manoa)

This is a stimulating, illuminating and rewarding work ― original, important, and profound . . . manifests both a superior mind and great integrity and might well prove to be a philosophical classic. (Marcus George Singer, University of Wisconsin)

I have no doubt at all, that if philosophy is to prosper in the coming decades, it will have to treat with great seriousness that splendid body of philosophical writing of which the essays in this volume constitute one major part. (Alasdair MacIntyre, research professor of philosophy, University of Notre Dame)
