Pragmatism and pragmaticism ; Scientific metaphysics

edited by Charles Hartshorne and Paul Weiss

"Volumes I-VI of the Collected Papers of Charles Sanders Peirce" are being reissued in response to a growing interest in Peirce's thought--a development that was prophesied by John Dewey when he reviewed the first volume of these papers on their appearance in 1931. Writing in "The New Republic," Mr. Dewey said, "Nothing much will happen in philosophy as long as a main object among philosophers is defense of some formulated historical position. I do not know of any other thinker more calculated than Peirce to give emancipation from the intellectual fortifications of the past and to arouse a fresh imagination."
