    Democracy and Moral Inquiry: Problems of the Methodological Argument.Henrik Rydenfelt - 2019 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 55 (3):254.
    Why is democracy good, or preferable to other systems of governance and political decision-making? Democracy has been argued to incorporate or promote central values, such as equality or freedom. On the other hand, many contemporary defenses of democracy have relied on arguments that attempt to show that democracy promotes or enables some second-order good, such as the validity, justification or legitimacy of political decision-making. Recent decades have seen the rise of epistemic arguments for democracy that belong to this latter type. (...)

    Emotional Interpretants and Ethical Inquiry.Henrik Rydenfelt - 2015 - Sign Systems Studies 43 (4):501-517.
    The connection between emotions and ethical views or ethical inquiry has been considered intimate by a number of philosophers. Based on Peirce’s discussion on the emotional interpretants in MS 318, I will suggest that such interpretants could be exploited in ethical inquiry. I will first argue, drawing on T. L. Short’s interpretation of Peirce, that there are final emotional interpretants, and such emotional interpretants actually formed can be more or less appropriate concerning the sign’s objects. I will then explore the (...)

    Epistemic Norms and Democracy: A Response to Talisse.Henrik Rydenfelt - 2011 - Metaphilosophy 42 (5):572-588.
    John Rawls argued that democracy must be justifiable to all citizens; otherwise, a democratic society is oppressive to some. In A Pragmatist Philosophy of Democracy (), Robert B. Talisse attempts to meet the Rawlsian challenge by drawing from Charles S. Peirce's pragmatism. This article first briefly canvasses the argument of Talisse's book and then criticizes its key premise concerning (normative) reasons for belief by offering a competing reading of Peirce's “The Fixation of Belief” (). It then proceeds to argue that (...)

    Realism Without Representationalism.Henrik Rydenfelt - 2020 - Synthese:1-18.
    Scientific realism is a critical target of anti-representationalists such as Richard Rorty and Huw Price, who have questioned the very possibility of providing a satisfactory argument for realism or any other ontological position. I will argue that there is a viable form of realism which not only withstands this criticism but is vindicated on the antirepresentationalists’ own grounds. This realist position, largely drawn from the notion of the scientific method developed by the founder of philosophical pragmatism, Charles S. Peirce, will (...)

    Valuation and the Will to Power: Nietzsche's Ethics with Ontology.Henrik Rydenfelt - 2013 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 44 (2):213-224.
    Nietzsche’s texts invite perplexing questions about the justification and objectivity of his ethical views. 1 On the one hand, Nietzsche often appears to subscribe to strong forms of antirealism or even nihilism about value. This has resulted in some classical readings such as Danto’s suggesting that, when reading Nietzsche, we are being asked “to abandon our meta-ethical beliefs (to use contemporary terms) as to the possibility of justifying whatever moral beliefs we have.” 2 On the other hand, many if not (...)
