9781591025498: F.C.S. Schiller on Pragmatism and Humanism: Selected Writings, 1891-1939 (Contemporary Studies in Philosophy and the Human Sciences)

The renaissance of pragmatism in recent decades has stimulated renewed study of the classical pragmatists. Until this volume, F. C. S. Schiller (1864–1937) was the only major pragmatist from the classical era whose significant writings remained uncollected for renewed scholarly study.

The forty-two pieces in this collection represent Schiller’s finest writings. They range across a broad spectrum of specific topics: logic and scientific method, meaning and truth, pluralism and monism, personalism and idealism, metaphysics and values, evolution and religion, and ethics and politics. An introduction to Schiller’s life and career, introductory essays to the volume’s seven parts, and a bibliography of Schiller’s books and essays are also included.
