Synopsis: These volumes reprint five of the most significant critiques of pragmatism written before World War I, along with a selection of contemporary responses and replies. Each author was a formidable philosophical critic. James B. Pratt was educated at Harvard; initially attracted to James's pragmatism, he soon became a member of the Realist movement. Paul Carus, the editor of The Monist, and Albert Schinz, a scholar of language and literature, deplored pragmatism's relativism. William Caldwell was a product of the Cornell school of idealism. John T. Driscoll appealed to Thomistic scholasticism for his critique of pragmatism. They all participated in the heated controversies over pragmatism during its first decade, and drew on this experience to sum up their views in their books reprinted in these sets. These are key texts for understanding the context of pragmatism's years of greatest vitality.

About the Author: Mark G. Spencer is associate professor in the Department of History at Brock University, ON. He teaches courses on colonial and early U.S. history and the history of ideas in the Atlantic world, including the early U.S. history survey and upper-level and graduate courses on the American Enlightenment and American Revolution. His current research projects include a SSHRC-supported volume on David Hume as historian (contracted with Penn State University Press) and work on the American Enlightenment.

Book Description Bristol.: Thoemmes Pr, 2001. Hardcover. Condition: As New. No Jacket. 1st Edition. FRM-CL) Complete 5 volume set still in the original shipping box.May require additional postage because of weight. List price Amazon - $480.00. ""The Foundations of Pragmatism in American Thought" series offers two sets of volumes containing the most significant defenses and critiques of pragmatism written before World War I: the "Early Defenders of Pragmatism" and "Early Critics of Pragmatism". This, the first collection, "Early Defenders", provides key texts for understanding the context of pragmatism's years of greatest vitality. Each author was either a pragmatist of stature in their own right, or a formidable philosophical critic from a rival school of thought. They all participated in the heated controversies over pragmatism during its first decade, and drew onthis experience to sum up their views in their books reprinted in these sets. The early critics represent the broad spectrum of philosophical activity at the start of the 20th century. James B. Pratt was educated at Harvard; initially attracted to James's pragmatism, he soon became a member of the Realist movement. Paul Carus, the editor of "The Monist", and Albert Schinz, a scholar of language and literature, deplored pragmatism's relativism. William Caldwell was a product of the Cornell school of idealism. John T. Driscoll appealled to Thomistic scholasticism for his critique of pragmatism. The central texts of the movement can be found in this set, along with a representative selection of the secondary texts, reviews and responses they elicited. Each volume features a newly-commissioned introduction by a scholar of American pragmatism. " (Publisher). Seller Inventory # H-T16M
