John Rawls and American Pragmatism: Between Engagement and Avoidance (Paperback)
(This item cannot be returned.)
Daniele Botti argues that John Rawls's philosophy is importantly connected with classical American pragmatism and that Rawls's intellectual trajectory did not take a "pragmatic turn" in the 1980s but possibly an "un-pragmatic" one. Both claims go against conventional wisdom, and Botti corroborates them with archival research.
