The experience-language debate in contemporary pragmatism turns on whether or not experience should hold pride of place for any thinker who claims the title ‘pragmatist.’ In this paper, I aim to reframe this debate by putting at its center the notion of friction. If we understand the experience-language debate among contemporary pragmatists to be a debate about sources of friction, I assert that there are actually three relevant positions which disagree about whether the relevant source of friction is metaphysical, epistemological, or ethical-political.
