KIRKUS REVIEW

Thanks to author Smith we have here a high, wide and impressive, if not particularly definitive, demonstration that pragmatism was and still is the golden pinnacle of American philosophy. The author's survey amply elaborates on and soundly elucidates the work of the four masters involved: Peirce, Royce, James and Dewey along with a concluding appraisal of Whitehead. A boon and a work-out for students.
