Skype Meeting: William James-Pragmatism

  • January 31, 2013 · 8:00 PM

We kick off our Spring series on Pragmatism with two works by William James, Pragmatism and The Meaning of Truth. These were intended to be definitive statements of his Philosophy.

For our first meeting we discuss Pragmatism, a series of lectures he delivered in Boston and New York in 1906 and 1907 and published later that year. Pragmatism includes eight lectures where he defines Pragmatism, outlines his pragmatic theory of truth and discusses its relationship to Metaphysics, Common Sense, Religion and Humanism.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
