Thematic Studies in Phenomenology and Pragmatism
The themes chosen for study in this volume are deeply embedded within the respective structures of phenomenology and pragmatism, though often implicitly so. Each of the six chapters begins with the phenomenological perspective and then proceeds to the pragmatic focus. The intent of each chapter is both to provide increased clarity in understanding each of the two positions and to reveal the basic philosophic rapport between them. Such a recognized rapport in turn adds to the insightful understanding of each position, at times opening up new possibilities for the expansion or deepening of a particular position. For, once the fundamental rapport is uncovered, the two different approaches can be found to cast mutually revealing lights on seemingly diverse, but ultimately unifying, interests. The phenomenological philosophy of this study thematically focuses primarily on the existential phenomenology of Merleau-Ponty and Heidegger. The pragmatic framework incorporates the philosophies of the five major classical American pragmatists: Charles S. Peirce, William James, John Dewey, G.H. Mead, and C.I. Lewis.
