In 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.
