Textbooks William James Mobi Read Apps Download William James is known today strictly as a philosopher of pragmatism. Hand of ♚Kennan Ferguson♚ Williams James: Politics in the Pluriverse challenges this understanding. Hand of ♚Kennan Ferguson♚ Kennan Ferguson argues that James should instead be known as the progenitor of pluralism, one of the most influential and durable American political philosophies of the twentieth century. Hand of ♚Kennan Ferguson♚ James contended that engagement with the foreign, the difficult, and the uncomfortable makes us who we are. Hand of ♚Kennan Ferguson♚ Rather than mitigating differences or attempting to resolve conflicts, he embraced them, wholeheartedly advocating the opportunity to be transformed. Hand of ♚Kennan Ferguson♚ Pluralism, in the mind of the thinker who popularized the term, led to a more complex, more contentious, and far more interesting world. Hand of ♚Kennan Ferguson♚ Ferguson traces the historical importance and contemporary possibilities of pluralism’s original political insight. Hand of ♚Kennan Ferguson♚ In this important work he examines the trajectory of pluralism in the United States and England, the mutual influences of turn-of-the-century American and European philosophical traditions, and the relationship between pluralism and James’s active anti-imperialism. Hand of ♚Kennan Ferguson♚ James’s unexpected political concepts and commitments both illuminate political philosophy of the 20th century and challenge contemporary assumptions about the desirability of unanimity. Hand of ♚Kennan Ferguson♚ Pluralism, not unity, should be the goal of both politics and philosophy.
