    Extrait : "Le pragmatisme s'est présenté lui-même très souvent comme une réaction contre les tendances maîtresses des systèmes qui l'ont précédé. Pour bien comprendre le sens et la portée de ce mouvement, il importe donc de considérer tout d'abord les doctrines, et particulièrement les théories de la connaissance qui ont, à partir de 1870 environ,... more...

  • Taking Evil Seriouslyby S. Pihlström

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2014; US$ 60.38
