    In Praise of Pagan Virtues: Toward a Renewed Philosophical Pedagogy.Mary Magada-Ward - 2018 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 32 (1):200.
    It is my claim that an essential part of our obligation as teachers and scholars of philosophy is to cultivate in ourselves and our students a sense of wonder—or what Dewey calls "the old pagan virtue" of gratitude —in the very possibility of human flourishing and scientific discovery.1 In advancing this claim, I am not asking philosophers to abdicate our traditional, and always necessary, critical role.2 Instead, I am urging us to remember that the ultimate point of criticism is to (...)

    Can a Feminist Love the Super Bowl?Mary Magada-Ward - 2016 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 30 (1):94-103.
    There are good reasons to celebrate the Super Bowl. It provides a de facto national holiday that crosses religious, racial, class, and, increasingly, gender lines, and its exhibition of human athletic prowess and perseverance can be, I believe, ennobling to the viewer. Perhaps most importantly, it epitomizes the place of the NFL in our culture and can thus illuminate why certain incidents involving professional football players have incited widespread discussion of contemporary social ills. Can anyone doubt the impact of Richard (...)

    Feminist Epistemology and American Pragmatism: Dewey and Quine (Review).Mary Magada-Ward - 2010 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 24 (2):197-200.
    Alexandra Shuford's book is primarily designed to address the following question: "What can Deweyan pragmatism contribute to a feminist empiricist epistemology?" (viii). Her answer is Dewey's conception of habit, and in her final chapter, she illustrates the utility of this conception by comparing what she labels the "medicalized" model of labor and birth to that employed by practitioners of midwifery. Before looking at Shuford's reading of this contrast more closely, however, it needs to be noted at the outset that she (...)

    The Virtues and Dangers of Connecting Art to Life: Can Pragmatism Address Balthus?Mary Magada-Ward - 2011 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 25 (1):22-32.
    The artist Sandra McMorris Johnson once told me that, as much as she had always loved Gauguin, she had nevertheless become increasingly uncomfortable looking at his paintings because so many of them depict thirteen-year-old girls in an extremely sexualized way. I think about her discomfort with Gauguin whenever I consider my reaction to Balthus, an artist whose best paintings I find to be utterly beautiful.1 These paintings are, however, highly, if not obsessively, eroticized portraits of prepubescent girls. It should be (...)

    Why Pragmatists Should Not Be Cyborgs.Mary Magada-Ward - 2014 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 28 (4):472-488.
    My project is to demonstrate the pragmatic importance of respecting the distinctions between science and myth and fact and fiction. In a country in which intelligent design is still taught as respectable science at some public universities and national figures make claims about “legitimate” rape,1 it is irresponsible to blur the boundaries between myth and science in some all-encompassing notion of “narrative.” Furthermore, its value as a political strategy is negligible because such blurring hinders the realization of those liberatory ideals (...)

    He Saw What Was Going to Happen in the World and Put It on Stage.Mary Magada-Ward - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (1):177-189.
    I take as my title a claim made by Arthur Mitchell about George Balanchine’s 1957 ballet Agon. Mitchell, a MacArthur Fellow, U.S. Medal of Arts winner, and founder of the Dance Theatre of Harlem,1 was the first African American principal dancer in the history of the New York City Ballet. Most importantly for my purposes, he was also the premier danseur upon whom Balanchine choreographed the central pas de deux of Agon. Mitchell’s partner was the ballerina Diana Adams, whom Balanchine (...)

    Helping Thought and Keeping It Pragmatical, or, Why Experience Plays Practical Jokes.Mary Magada-Ward - 2005 - Contemporary Pragmatism 2 (2):63-71.
    In claiming that "the method of our great teacher, Experience" is "a system of teaching by practical jokes," Peirce's objective, I argue, is to get us to see the unexpected as cause for neither despair nor nihilism but as an opportunity to strengthen our affinity with the natural world. Peirce's celebration of the flexibility demanded by the "pedagogic method" employed by "Dame Experience" reinforces the dependence between cultivating a sense of humor and developing fruitful habits of inquiry.
