First published in 1974, this book is a critical introduction to the work of four quintessential pragmatist philosophers: Charles Sanders Peirce, William James, George Herbert Mead and John Dewey.

Alongside providing a general historical and biographical account of the pragmatist movement, the work offers an in depth critical response to the philosophical doctrines of the four main thinkers of the pragmatist movement, with reference to the theories of meaning, knowledge and conduct which have come to define pragmatism.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Professor Scheffler's work is characterised by careful reasoning, trenchant criticism, and alertness to the pitfalls of an argument ... Four Pragmatists takes its place as a significant contribution to the again-proliferating literature on American pragmatism.' - Harvard Educational Review

'Scheffler's book is a model of presentation. It is clearly written and its chapters are short and crisp. After some historical and biographical detail he gives us the essentials of each philosopher's position, and then scrupulously develops his critique of their views, mainly in analytic terms.' - Philosophical Books

'This is a notable book at any level of philosophical readership.' - Choice

'An ideal textbook for introducing undergraduates to the interdisciplinary implications of American pragmatism.' - Philosophical Review

'A major contribution to the literature on the pragmatists.' - British Journal of the Philosophy of Science

'...like everything Scheffler writes, is well worth reading.' - Mind
