Realism with a Human Face by Hilary Putnam
Book DescriptionIn this book, one of America's great philosophers calls upon his peers to embed philosophy in social life. Connecting metaphysics to cultural and literary issues, Putnam argues that the collapse of philosophical realism does not entail a fall into the abyss of relativism and postmodern skepticism. In this collection of thematically linked essays, Putnam argues that it is time for philosophy to return to its true place as a form of thought connected with real life.

Pragmatism as a Way of Life, Hardback (May 2017)
Hilary Putnam argues that all facts are dependent on cognitive values. Ruth Anna Putnam turns the problem around, illuminating the factual basis of moral principles. Together, they offer a pragmatic vision that in Hilary's words serves as a manifesto for what the two of us would like philosophy to look like in the twenty-first century and beyond."
Naturalism, Realism, and Normativity, Hardback (April 2016)

This volume reflects his latest thinking on how to articulate a theory of naturalism which acknowledges that normative phenomena form an ineluctable part of human experience.
