This chapter discusses criticisms and misconceptions on the pragmatist views of John Dewey and Charles Peirce. Classical pragmatists have always been incorrectly accused of making action an end to itself. Some of their well-known critics include Bertrand Russell, Max Horkheimer, Theodor Adorno and Lewis Mumford. This chapter clarifies that Dewey and Peirce characterize action as an important instrument of production and they both adjudicated action in terms of its products.

Keywords:   John Dewey, Charles Peirce, action, pragmatism, Bertrand Russell, Max Horkheimer, Theodor Adorno, Lewis Mumford, production
