Sintesi dell'editore

C.S. Peirce was an authentic American genius who developed a tough minded pragmatism and a sweeping philosophy of evolutionary love. William James, a trained physician, carefully studied human experience, including the highest reaches of consciousness. Peirce and James established a rich, sensible, and pragmatic American approach to philosophy's traditional problems.

The World of Philosophy series is a dramatic presentation, in understandable language, of the concerns, questions, interests, and overall outlook of the world's great philosophers and philosophical traditions. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations gives you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.

A nice little introduction

My one complaint about this book is that the reader for Peirce sounds consistently angry. Knowing a little about Peirce's personality, that may not be inaccurate, but it could easily obscure the message of his words. In fact, Peirce's language is often refreshingly clear while ocassionally and paradoxically bordering on the poetic. That said, this little book gives plenty of space to Peirce who, while little known to most laymen, is considered by many professionals as the most original and influential of American philosophers. This is an entertaining and illuminating introduction and likely to lead to a desire to know more.

Good introduction

American Pragmatism is one of the greatly misunderstood philosophical ideas. This particular introduction does a fine job of explaining both the historical and intellectual background. Some very important areas of pragmatism are cleared up in this work.

The source for anti-idealism...

A painless introduction to the primarily American philosophy of "the smell test". In brief "ideas must stand the practical scrutiny of rational people...despite historic dogma.

Cool voices dude

The voice actors are absolutely horrible. What in the hell are they thinking? Who are these voices for? What a joke.

A good companion to The Metaphysical Club

I’d also read Louis Menand’s classic to get the sense of what’s going on in the minds of these great people. They’re way ahead of their time and had successfully established great sets of ideas to help us think. In the age of confusing cultural norms, we need to be able to think so this book is appropriate for today’s circumstances.

Pragmatism lesson

A succinct and coherent review of the basic ideas and motivations of Pragmatism. Illuminating the history and effects of thinkers like Charles Pierce, William James and John Dewey, you will leave this lesson with a sharp understanding of the sympathies and antipathies of these three original thinkers.

I felt I needed more James

Great intro to Pierce, but I feel not enough James and Dewey. But a good introduction to Pragmatism overall, and I have a better sense of the different views on pragmatism.

Worth the Two Hours

I enjoyed this and I am glad I spent the two hours, though it isn't something that stands out for any particular reason. (It was also free for me from Audible - not sure if it is always free, or if that was a temporary deal).

Chances are, you will know based on the title whether or not this is something you are interested in. If so, then why not spend the two hours with it?

(Note: It isn't really an audiobook, and feels more like a radio show or podcast. That is fine by me, but worth noting.)

A good narrative account, lacking real depth.

I enjoyed this title and I think if it had been a radio broadcast I would have been very pleased with it. However, I expect a little more from a published (audio)book and was a little disappointed with the lack of depth in terms of the actual philosophy of Peirce and James themselves. Dewey was mentioned a great deal but again his take is summarised rather than really developed. Not a bad title, just not a great one. Still, probably worth two hours; though there's not much new in it if you're already familiar with either thinker. Could be a good one to recommend to students.
