Course Title
American Pragmatism

Description of Course:

This course will focus on America's most prominent, original philosophical tradition: pragmatism. American pragmatism is a diverse tradition, united by a common interest in the embedding of theory in practice, the fallibility of our knowledge, and a robust account of human experience. We will focus on several of the classical pragmatists (e.g., Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., C.S. Peirce, William James, John Dewey, and Jane Addams) and neo-pragmatists (e.g., W.V.O. Quine, Richard Rorty, Robert Brandom).
