Tim Button, The Times Literary Supplement In casting Peirce and Lewis as the heroes of American Pragmatism, with James and Dewey as the villains, Misak establishes an impressive continuity between pragmatism and both logical empiricism and contemporary analytic philosophy ... Indeed, the main arc that Cheryl Misak tracesfrom Kant, through Peirce and Lewis, and then on to W. V. Quine and into wider philosophical orthodoxydeserves to become widely known.

S.E. Forschler, CHOICE This book deserves to become a new standard for understanding the history of philosophical pragmatism; no other work covers such a diverse range of essential pragmatists together in such a short space, accurately and thoughtfully placing them in context with one another and with tradition as a whole ... Essential.
