    Pragmatism and Vagueness: The Venetian Lectures; Edited by Giovanni Tuzet by Claudine Tiercelin.David W. Agler - 2020 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 55 (4):458-463.
    Take a hypothetical sequence of human beings ordered by height from tallest to shortest. Make sure there is no more than a difference of a millimeter between each person and make sure the tallest person is clearly tall and the shortest person is clearly not tall. Now consider the following argument: P1 A person of height n is tall ; P2 For any height n, if n is tall, then n–1mm is tall ; C Therefore, a person of height n (...)

    Richard J. Bernstein and the Expansion of American Philosophy: Thinking the Plural Ed. By Megan Craig and Marcia Morgan.Sami Pihlström - 2020 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 55 (4):454-457.
    Richard Bernstein has, for several decades, been one of the most prominent thinkers in the tradition of American pragmatism, but he has never narrowly confined his work to pragmatism or American philosophy. His intellectual profile manifests a remarkable pluralism—which, of course, is something that is inherent in the pragmatist tradition itself. The collection of essays honoring Bernstein's legacy edited by Megan Craig and Marcia Morgan is aptly subtitled: "Thinking the Plural". In their various ways, the contributors to this anthology—all of (...)

    Thinking the Problem: From Dewey to Hegel.Christophe Point & Jean-Baptiste Vuillerod - 2020 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 55 (4):408-428.
    It is known today that Hegel's philosophy was at the center of the development of pragmatism. In particular, the relation of Dewey's philosophy to Hegel's has recently been studied with great attention1. Many studies have revealed that the German philosopher had a fundamental influence on the young John Dewey, particularly with regard to his theory of culture, for his logic, as well as for his psychology. These new readings propose a profoundly original view of Dewey and explain why he thought (...)
