On Contemporary Neopragmatism

(Original title: O súčasnom neopragmatizme)
Filozofia, 55 (2000), 10, 777-787.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

The author offers an outline of the contemporary pragmatist scene in American philosophy. He shows the continuity and common features of classic and recent pragmatisms of which the most crucial are antifoundationalism and antirepresentationalism. In his analysis he distinguishes two main currents of neopragmatist philosophy: 1. post-analytic (Rortyan), and 2. neo-classic (neo-Peirceian, neo-Jamesian and neo-Deweyan) lines. Finally he focuses on some characteristics of the Rortyan post-analytic neopragmatism as expressed in his last book Philosophy and Social Hope (1999).
