Pragmatism as Post-Postmodernism

Larry A. Hickman

Fordham University Press

This chapter attempts to show some of the ways in which John Dewey's version of pragmatism can be viewed as having advanced beyond the positions held by some of the authors commonly identified as postmodernists. It suggests that Dewey's pragmatism can and should be viewed as post modernism, and identifies some of the problems that postmodernism has left unresolved. This chapter also explains how Dewey dealt with those problems early in the 20th century.
