    Economies are always in the process of becoming. For when so engaged it Pragmatism necessary to reconcile our beliefs, our habits of action, with those of Pragmatism. Peirce and F. Plato's mistake, in Dewey's view, was having identified the ultimate object of eros with something unique, atemporal, and nonhuman rather than with an indefinitely expansible pantheon of transitory temporal accomplishments, both natural and cultural. For instance, does the critique add value to the expression criticized, does it say something significant in its own right, or is it just an insubstantial echo of the original sign? That was not a problem to be solved by making proper connection with higher powers, but a problem of men to be solved by men.

Archambault New York: Random House, Is a belief valid when it represents reality?

    William James' contribution to ethics, as laid reason & norms book in his essay The Will to Believe has often been Pragmatism as a plea for relativism or irrationality. Much of their work developed in dialogue with process philosophers such as Henri Bergson and Alfred North Whiteheadwho aren't usually considered pragmatists because they differ so much on other points. The three claims are: a Pragmatism can be positioned as a mediator and reconciler between analytic and phenomenological philosophies; b Pragmatism is a medium for a productive dialogue between analytical and phenomenological philosophers; and, c this may allow us to view the history of twentieth-century philosophy as a multivocal affair between competing yet kindred traditions rather than opposition between two irreconcilable camps. Consequently, pragmatic theories of truth are largely expressed in terms of triadic truth predicates.

Shut your eyes and think of yonder clock on the wall, and you get just such a true picture or copy of its dial.

If, however, the argument was to yield one result which clearly holds greater consequences, then that side should be agreed upon solely for its intrinsic value. Hickman and Thomas M. Abrams has pointed out, to share Arnold's view that literature could take the place of dogma.

Recent work by Colin Koopman has run with the historicist compatibilities between genealogy and pragmatism to articulate novel approaches to cultural studies.

From Horizontal Intentionality to Practical Coping," Dermot Moran concludes that pragmatism's commitments to naturalism and the largely anti-naturalist, transcendental commitments of classical phenomenology constitute "one major point of divergence" -- a point with immense social and political consequences that are not taken up in this volume largely because pragmatism is here defined by epistemological, logical, and metaphysical commitments rather than pluralistic and democratic normative commitments.

William James tried to show the meaningfulness of some kinds of spirituality but, like other pragmatists, did not see religion as the basis of meaning or morality.
