Philosophical Writings of Peirce

Philosophical Writings of Peirce Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

George Herbert Mead is widely recognized as one of the most brilliantly original American pragmatists. Although he had a profound influence on the development of social philosophy, he published no books in his lifetime. This makes the lectures collected in Mind, Self, and Society all the more remarkable, as they offer a rare synthesis of his ideas.

This collection gets to the heart of Meads meditations on social psychology and social philosophy. Its penetrating, conversational tone transports the reader directly into Meads classroom as he teases out the genesis of the self and the nature of the mind. The book captures his wry humor and shrewd reasoning, showing a man comfortable quoting Aristotle alongside Alice in Wonderland.

Included in this edition are an insightful foreword from leading Mead scholar Hans Joas, a revealing set of textual notes by Dan Huebner that detail the texts origins, and a comprehensive bibliography of Meads other published writings. While Meads lectures inspired hundreds of students, much of his brilliance has been lost to time. This new edition ensures that Meads ideas will carry on, inspiring a new generation of thinkers.

Synopsis:

George Herbert Mead is widely considered among the most influential philosophers in American pragmatism. Created from verbatim notes of his widely attended lectures at the University of Chicago, Mind, Self, And Society captures both the intellect and the personality of one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century and remains a seminal text in both social psychology and philosophy. This new, definitive edition includes an insightful foreword from leading Mead scholar Hans Joas, as well as a revealing set of textual notes by Dan Huebner that detail the origins of the text. The added materials will shed new light and spur new scholarship on this masterwork.

Synopsis:

Arranged and integrated to reveal epistemology, phenomenology, theory of signs, other major topics. Includes "The Fixation of Beliefs," "How to Make Our Ideas Clear," "The Scientific Attitude and Fallibilism," "Philosophy and the Sciences: A Classification," " The Principles of Phenomenology," " Logic as Semiotic: The Theory of Signs," and "The Criterion of Validity in Reasoning."
