The Future of American Philosophy

The Future of American Philosophy

(p.195) Thirteen The Future of American Philosophy
Pragmatism with Purpose

Peter Hare

Fordham University Press

This chapter examines the future of American philosophy: where it is headed, what challenges it faces, and what strategies from our past appear to be the most promising for solving modern problems. It expects internationalization to be the dominant reality in philosophy in the coming decades, and suggests that we must recognize this fully and that American philosophy in general and individual philosophers in the country need to respond to the challenge of internationalism in the most constructive, responsible, and just way. There are many reasons for this ongoing internationalization, including the Internet and the emergence of English as virtually a universal language among those who have received higher education in the last two decades. The chapter argues that the future of American philosophy depends in large part on how philosophical training and research relates to society.
