    Pragmatism as a Way of Life: The Lasting Legacy of William James and John Dewey by Hilary Putnam and Ruth Anna Putnam.Brandon Daniel-Hughes - 2020 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 41 (1):96-98.
    David Macarthur has assembled not only a fascinating collection of essays from Hilary Putnam and Ruth Anna Putnam that spans two decades but also a collection that makes a compelling series of arguments about what pragmatism has been, is, and may yet become. This is all the more impressive since it weaves together the voices of two scholars who shared both an intellectual commitment and a life. As a longtime admirer of Hilary Putnam’s work, I was excited to take a (...)

    Whitehead's Religious Thought: From Mechanism to Organism, From Force to Persuasion by Daniel A. Dombrowski.Brandon Daniel-Hughes - 2017 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 53 (3):499-503.
    Most theisms and atheisms share an assumption about what divine action would look like; if God is real and acts in the world, then God acts through intervention, invading the mechanistic world as an alien agent. Whitehead's Religious Thought takes dead aim at this contention, arguing that such conceptions of divine intervention emerge from and reinforce a problematic dualism that permeates western theological discourse. Throughout his text Daniel A. Dombrowski links dualistic conceptions of human experience with metaphysical dualism, but also (...)

    Ubiquitous Inquiry: Peircean Possibilities in the Practice and Study of Religion.Brandon Daniel-Hughes - 2018 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 54 (4):496.
    While scholars of religion have explored Peirce's philosophy of religion and extensively mined his groundbreaking work in semiotics, other aspects of Peirce's religious and theological thought have been largely ignored within religious studies. In particular, Peirce's theory of inquiry offers several potentially important insights that scholars of religion would do well to consider more fully. These insights are best realized through conceiving of religious participation as a form of inquiry, continuous with but importantly different from other forms of human inquiry. (...)

    Postpartum Theology: Axiological Experimentation at the Margins.Brandon Daniel-Hughes - 2018 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 39 (3):48.
    Terminological debates are often circular and unproductive, so it is a pleasure to investigate the terminology of LeRon Shults, who argues with clarity, defines his terms, and offers reasons for preferring one term over another. I would not, however, waste the readers' time if my aim were merely to challenge some of Shults's nomenclature. When one sets out, as does Shults, to intervene in the process of theogonic reproduction, terminological and metaphorical choices matter a great deal insofar as the semiotic (...)
