This chapter explores the origins of pragmatism between 1898 and 1916. Intellects like Herbert Schneider, Joseph Blau, and others, kept the pragmatic tradition alive, but it became highly visible when Richard Rorty confronted that tradition with its own limitations. The neopragmatic movement brought new readers to the texts of Peirce, James, Schiller, and Dewey. James brought pragmatism to religion, to humanistic psychology, and to the sociology of science. Pierce influenced the notion of scientific method, legal interpretation, and linguistic analysis. Dewey brought pragmatism to American culture through his work in education, political practice, and aesthetic practice by way of his work with the Barnes Foundation.

Keywords:   pragmatism, Richard Rorty, neopragmatic movement, Peirce, James, Schiller, Dewey, humanistic psychology
