"The Two Pragmatisms - From Peirce to Rorty" maps the main movements within the pragmatist tradition. Two distinct forms of pragmatism are identified, that of Peirce and that of the "second" pragmatism stemming from James' interpretation of Peirce and seen in the work of Dewey and, above all, Rorty. Both the influential work of Rorty and the way in which he has transformed contemporary philosophy's understanding of pragmatism are clearly explained. "The Two Pragmatisms - From Peirce to Rorty" is essential reading for those interested in the history of this increasingly influential movement, whether first-time philosophers or more advanced readers.

"This is a valuable book: it will find a place in introductory courses where Mounce's clear discussion of the central texts in pragmatism will be very welcome." -Ethics
