(p.65) Four Working Certainty and Deweyan Wisdom
Philosophy Americana

Douglas R. Anderson

Fordham University Press

This chapter aims to work toward a middle ground where American idealism and pragmatism share an answer to the question: How are we, then, to get around in an everyday sort of wilderness? The chapter speaks to one dimension of abandonment. It explores the ways in which John Dewey's sense of wisdom resists such abandonment.

Keywords:   American idealism, pragmatism, wilderness, abandonment, John Dewey
