"The Foundations of Pragmatism in American Thought" series offers two sets of volumes containing the most significant defenses and critiques of pragmatism written before World War I: the "Early Defenders of Pragmatism" and "Early Critics of Pragmatism". This, the first collection, "Early Defenders", provides key texts for understanding the context of pragmatism's years of greatest vitality. The early defenders were products of pragmatism's three cradels. H. Heath Bawden was a graduate of the Chicago philosophy department, having studied with John Dewey and George Mead. John E. Boodin and Horace M. Kallen earned their PhD's with William James and Josiah Royce at Harvard. D.L. Murray and Howard V. Knox were independent scholars and writers inspired by F.C.S. Schiller's humanistic pragmatism at Oxford. This collection brings together the central texts of the movement along with a representative selection of the secondary texts, reviews and responses, they elicited. Each volume features a newly-commissioned introduction by a leading scholar of American pragmatism.
