Pragmatism, Reason & Norms: A Realistic Assessment

Fordham University Press (1998)

Kenneth R. Westphal
Bogazici University
This collection of essays examines the issue of norms and social practices both in epistemology and in moral and social philosophy. The contributors examine the issue across an unprecedented range of issues, including epistemology (realism, perception, testimony), logic, education, foundations of morality, philosophy of law, the pragmatic account of norms and their justification, and the pragmatic character of reason itself.
