About John Dewey, the post-Deweyan
pragmatists cannot keep the legacy alive. Pragmatism is the name of the unruly
Native American philosophy which builds a blind spot in the pragmatic temper.
Dewey presumes that nature is a plastic medium predisposed to human mastery and
more so in an endeavour to dissolve the self into social circumstances. The
pragmatist dissolutions of the themes by Dewey are compelling such that the
assumption is something willing can render it real. Also, post –Deweyan
pragmatists fail to keep the legacy alive because it emphasizes those
philosophical theories should not only be tagged to practice but ought to be
measured following their ability to guide practice. The implication is that
recurring (West, The American Evasion of Philosophy: A Genealogy of Pragmatism)
philosophical problems need to be discarded since they have no practical
relevance. For instance, the American separation of powers plays a significant
role in regulating the interests/desires which post- structuralisms perceive to
be circulating via ruling moral regimes. For the legacy to be alive there is a
need for re help to drive the desires. Further, the American Constitution is
designed to regulate authoritative interpretation of the passion above.
The American pragmatism can meet the
new challenges of the American century. The pragmatism is an experience which
consists of inference such that through our experiences as an American people
we are ae to interact with the environment and get data which is useful to meet
people’s needs. Experiences and events give people exposure and shape their
habits. Thus, we should not necessarily follow philosophers who are out to
impose a significant difference between uninterrupted expertise and any
inferential cycle which leads one to interpret what we go through as citizens.
Pragmatism has undergone a revival since 1970’s to the 21st century whereby
philosophers are willing to use ideas of classical pragmatists. The influence
of American pragmatists reduced during the twentieth century. It expresses the
hope of having future enlightenment and rich comprehension of experience and
science. Pragmatism emphasizes the overall character if making inquiry and the
urgency of taking into account of experiences of other pragmatists. Besides, it
offers a basis for the defence of Americans democratic values. It provides the
foundation for evaluation and criticism of institutions as well as conduct.
American pragmatism meets the new challenges of the American century because the
perception is different in the 21st century where democracy overrules
philosophy (West, 2009).
American pragmatism will lose its
footing in the new wilderness. It is a social movement and a source of mutual
influence, assimilation, destruction, and wilderness. The American story
continues to be a narrative of struggle among a radically different people via
the principle of pluralism and a distinction between American culture,
intuition-ism, utilitarianism as well as empiricism in epistemology. Pragmatism
helped ease the cultural and economic transition in America enhancing modulates
the relationship between its people and the corporate capitalism. American
pragmatism mediates between the old and the new giving people a fresh insight.
Further, Pragmatism will lose its meaning in the modern wilderness due to its
limitations from the historical view, and one can only ask if the authentic and
meant purpose of pragmatism in the world of philosophy had fulfilled its
