Pragmatism and the Sciences: Retrospect and Prospect

View File

The overall purpose of the panel is to reconsider the relationship between the tradition of classical American philosophy and the sciences, in the light of (1) a renewed appreciation of Dewey’s neglected contributions to the philosophy of science, (2) the formative influence of the sciences—especially the Darwinian revolution in biology—on the early history of classical American philosophy, and (3) contemporary developments in the biological sciences to which the American pragmatist tradition has the potential to make a significant contribution.
