Pragmatism, Pluralism, and the State

View File

Jessica Hejny
University of Oregon

In this essay I propose a conception of pluralism rooted in the classical pragmatist tradition. Drawing on the work of William James and Mary Parker Follett, I articulate political pluralism through their work and endeavor to extend their thought in order to think through the application of pragmatist pluralism to the state. I focus particularly on state governance in the form of policymaking, drawing particularly on the work of Follett in order to demonstrate that pragmatist pluralism lends itself to deliberative democracy as a form of governance in practice.
