Cambridge Companion to Peirce by Cheryl Misak

Book Description

Charles Sanders Peirce (1839-1914) is generally considered the most significant American philosopher. He was the founder of pragmatism, the view popularized by William James and John Dewey, that our philosophical theories must be linked to experience and practice. The essays in this volume reveal how Peirce worked through this idea to make important contributions to most branches of philosophy. The topics covered include Peirce's influence; the famous pragmatic maxim and the view of truth and reality arising from it; the question as to whether mathematical, moral and religious hypotheses might aspire to truth; his theories of inquiry and perception; and his contribution to semiotics, statistical inference and deductive logic. New readers will find this the most convenient and accessible guide to Peirce currently available. Advanced students and specialists will find a conspectus of recent developments in the interpretation of Peirce.

Cambridge Pragmatism by Cheryl Misak Cambridge Pragmatism, Hardback (August 2016)

Cheryl Misak offers a strikingly new view of the reception of American pragmatism in England. Supposedly it never recovered from the attacks of Russell and Moore; but Misak shows that Frank Ramsey, under the influence of Peirce, developed a pragmatist position of great promise, and that he transmitted that pragmatism to his friend Wittgenstein

American Pragmatists by Cheryl Misak American Pragmatists, Paperback (January 2015)

Cheryl Misak presents a history of the great American philosophical tradition of pragmatism, from its inception in the 1870s to the present day. She traces the connections between classical American pragmatism and contemporary analytic philosophy, and draws out the continuing influence of pragmatist ideas in the recent history of philosophy.

New Pragmatists by Cheryl Misak New Pragmatists, Paperback (April 2009)

The great American philosophers Peirce, James, and Dewey pioneered the view that our philosophical concepts must be connected to our non-philosophical practices of inquiry and deliberation. In this volume leading contemporary philosophers explore and develop the pragmatist project, showing that pragmatism is a strong current in philosophy today.

Oxford Handbook of American Philosophy by Cheryl Misak Oxford Handbook of American Philosophy, Hardback (September 2008)

Leading experts examine distinctive features of American philosophy, trace notable themes, and consider the legacy of key figures. A fascinating resource for anyone interested in modern philosophy or American intellectual history.
