Books By Author 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, 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, 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.
