PHL 316 American Pragmatism

3 Credit(s) DI CS
The course explores uniquely American contributions to philosophy primarily, if not exclusively, through the study of the influential pragmatist thinkers C.S. Pierce, William James, and John Dewey.  Students will examine these philosophers’ approaches to subjects such as truth, knowledge, ethics, religion, education, and pluralism.  The course may also include other American philosophers within or outside of the pragmatist tradition.  Three lecture hours per week.
