    Jeremy Dunham (forthcoming). Was James Ward a Cambridge Pragmatist? British Journal for the History of Philosophy.
    Although the Cambridge Professor of Mental Philosophy and Logic James Ward was once one of Britain’s most highly regarded Psychologists and Philosophers, today his work is unjustly neglected. This is because his philosophy is frequently misrepresented as a reactionary anti-naturalistic idealist theism. In this article, I argue, first, that this reading is false, and that by viewing Ward through the lens of pragmatism we obtain a fresh interpretation of his work that highlights the scientific nature of his philosophy and his (...)

    Anne Waters, Structural Disadvantage and a Place at the Table: Creating a Space for Indigenous Philosophers to Be More ProActively Involved in Decision Making Forums Affecting the Emergence and Impact of Indigenous Philosophers of the Americas. American Philosophical Association Committee on American Indians in Philosophy.
    In this paper, Waters introduces American Indians who hold a Ph.D. in philosophy. Waters explains that because American Indians are unable to garner the financial, collegial, and academic support needed to rise to inclusive positions in the philosophical profession, most of our colleagues and students remain uneducated and ignorant about indigenous people and our philosophies that are still alive today on this shared American continent. America’s indigenous philosophers have important contributions to make to philosophy and culture; yet our conceptual nonexistence (...)

    Anne Schulherr Waters, Syllabus: Native Studies 450-001: Global Indigenous Philosophy, Spring 2005, University of New Mexico. American Philosophical Association Newsletter on American Indians in Philosophy.
    This syllabus engages dialogue about indigenous philosophical ideas and issues that frame contemporary global indigenous thought, perspective, and worldview. We explore how presuppositions of indigenous philosophy, including epistemology (how/what we know), metaphysics (what is), science (stories), and ethics (practices), affect global research programs, intellectual cultural property, economic policies, ecology, biodiversity, taxonomy, health, housing, food, employment, economic sustainability, peace negotiations, climate justice, human/treaty rights, colonial law, refugees and incarceration, self-determination, sovereignty, nation building, and digital information. Readings provide an understanding of traditional (...)

    Anne Schulherr Waters, MEMORIAL IN HONOR OF VIOLA CORDOVA (V.F. CORDOVA), PH.D. American Philosophical Association Newsletter on American Indians in Philosophy, Vol.2, #2, Spring 2003.
    This article was prepared for the Prepared for the Memorial Service at the University of New Mexico on March 28, 2003. Compared are the philosophy of Standing Bear and Viola Cordova. "Both Standing Bear and Cordova recognized the ruptured consciousness into which Indian students frequently fall when we encounter colonial culture. Both critically challenged the academic education being taught to Native students, in method and content. Both recognized the importance of Native students receiving an education in consonance with their cultural (...)

    Darren Hutchinson (2014). The Performance of Pluralism and the Practice of Theory (For Richard Rorty). The Pluralist 9 (2):103-129.
    There is a war between the ones who say there is a war and the ones who say there isn’t.argument: pluralistic theory opens itself toward different values, languages, histories, modes of reasoning, and forms of experience with a commitment not to reduce or hierarchize the many by means of the one. Such theory has emerged out of various traditions, including those associated with American pragmatism (Emerson, James, Dewey), analytic philosophy (Wittgenstein, Rorty), and continental philosophy (Derrida, Nancy). Not surprisingly, the pluralism (...)

    Daniel G. Campos (2014). Peirce's Prejudices Against Hispanics and the Ethical Scope of His Philosophy. The Pluralist 9 (2):42-64.
    in two letters concerning the Spanish-American War of 1898, Charles Sanders Peirce openly expresses some egregious prejudices against several groups of people, including Hispanics—people of at least partly Spanish origin in the Iberian Peninsula or the Americas (L 254 and L 339; reprint, translation to Spanish, and commentary in Nubiola and Zalamea 76–811). In an undated letter to his cousin Henry Cabot Lodge, a Massachusetts politician, Peirce writes regarding the war: “I don’t believe the Spaniards will make a good fight; (...)

    Gregory Fernando Pappas (2014). The Narrative and Identity of Pragmatism in America: The History of a Dysfunctional Family? The Pluralist 9 (2):65-83.
    we have recently seen the publication of several books on the narrative and identity of Pragmatism. Perhaps this is a sign that, after the first decade of the twenty-first century, scholars of Pragmatism now have the required distance or historical perspective to be confident about the history of Pragmatism in the twentieth century. In this paper, I examine the narratives of Pragmatism in Richard Bernstein’s The Pragmatic Turn and Colin Koopman’s Pragmatism as Transition.1 In spite of their differences, these scholars (...)

    Nora Hämäläinen (2014). The Ethics of Remembering People and the Fact/Value Dichotomy—: Doris Lessing and Iris Murdoch. The Pluralist 9 (2):84-102.
    through examining the case of Doris Lessing’s varying accounts of her mother, I discuss here the fundamental fact/value entanglement involved in describing people, human situations, and human relations. A serious consideration of the ethical and epistemic challenges involved in biographical narration will provide strong reasons for jettisoning the fact/value dichotomy when thinking about human life.1 Yet, I do not propose such considerations as providing an overall model for rejecting the fact/value dichotomy, but rather suggest that there may be no formal (...)

    Anne Waters (ed.) (2004). American Indian Thought: Philosophical Essays. Blackwell (Oxford).
    This book brings together a diverse group of American Indian thinkers to discuss traditional and contemporary philosophies and philosophical issues. The essays presented here address philosophical questions pertaining to knowledge, time, place, history, science, law, religion, nationhood, ethics, and art, as understood from a variety of Native American standpoints. Unique in its approach, this volume represents several different tribes and nations and amplifies the voice of contemporary American Indian culture struggling for respect and autonomy. Taken together, the essays collected here (...)

    Graham Hubbs (2014). Some Varieties of Pragmatism. In Graham Hubbs Douglas Lind (ed.), Pragmatism, Law, and Language. Routledge. 1-13.
    This essay introduces the volume in which it is found. It explains how the essays of the volume belong to a single vista, one that ranges from metaethics to political philosophy, from a discussion of Hegelian recognition to an analysis of the Rwandan genocide. It articulates this explanation in terms of a variety of pragmatisms. The taxonomy it develops draws on Robert Brandom's recent discussions of pragmatism.
