Contents Preface: Pragmatism and Criticism -- 1. Thinking in the Emersonian Way -- 2. William James's Psychology of Pragmatic Thinking -- 3. Peirce's Logic of Pragmatic Inference.
Summary The Pragmatic Mind is a study of the pragmatism of Emerson, James, and Peirce and its overlooked relevance for the neopragmatism of thinkers like Richard Rorty, Stanley Cavell, Stanley Fish, and Cornel West. Arguing that the "original" pragmatists are too-often cited casually and imprecisely as mere precursors to this contemporary group of American intellectuals, Mark Bauerlein explores the explicit consequences of the earlier group's work for current debates among and around the new pragmatists.
