Robert Talisse on Pragmatist Politics

I most highly recommend Talisse's new article in Metaphilosophy (which is part of a larger symposium on his outstanding book A Pragmatist Philosophy of Democracy) found here. An abstract:

"In A Pragmatist Philosophy of Democracy, I launched a pragmatist critique of Deweyan democracy and a pragmatist defense of an alternative view of democracy, one based in C. S. Peirce's social epistemology. In this article, I develop a more precise version of the criticism of Deweyan democracy I proposed in A Pragmatist Philosophy of Democracy, and provide further details of the Peircean alternative. Along the way, some recent critics are addressed."
