Pragmatic Encounters, Paperback / softback Book


Richard J. Bernstein is a leading exponent of American pragmatism and one of the foremost philosophers of the twentieth century.

In this collection he takes a pragmatic approach to specific problems and issues to demonstrate the ongoing importance of this philosophical tradition.

Topics under discussion include multiculturalism, political public life, evil and religion.

Individual philosophers studied are Kant, Arendt, Rorty, Habermas, Dewey and Trotsky.

Each of the sixteen essays, many of which are published here for the first time, offers a way of bridging contemporary philosophical differences.

This book will be of interest to scholars of philosophy and those researching social and political theory.
