Contemporary Pragmatism

Contemporary Pragmatism

Contemporary Pragmatism (CP) is an interdisciplinary, international, academic journal for discussions of applying pragmatism, broadly understood, to today's issues. The journal will consider articles about pragmatism written from the standpoint of any tradition and perspective, but it concentrates on original explorations of pragmatism and pragmatism's relations with humanism, naturalism, and analytic philosophy. The journal welcomes both pragmatism-inspired research and criticisms of pragmatism. It does not consider submissions that principally interpret or critique historical figures of American philosophy, although applications of past thought to contemporary issues are sought. Contributions may deal with current issues in any field of philosophical inquiry. CP encourages interdisciplinary efforts, establishing bridges between pragmatic philosophy and, for example, theology, psychology, pedagogy, sociology, medicine, economics, political science, or international relations.

Contemporary Pragmatism

The journal was founded in 2004 and is published by Rodopi.
CP is published biannually in June and December.
