The Metaphysics of Pragmatism is a philosophical book written by Sidney Hook. The book explores the relationship between pragmatism and metaphysics. Pragmatism is a philosophical approach that emphasizes practical consequences as the basis for determining the truth or effectiveness of a theory or belief. Metaphysics, on the other hand, is concerned with the nature of reality and the universe.In the book, Hook argues that pragmatism and metaphysics are not mutually exclusive, but rather can be integrated to provide a more complete understanding of reality. He examines the contributions of several prominent pragmatist philosophers, including William James and John Dewey, and explores their views on metaphysical issues such as causation, free will, and the nature of reality.Hook also discusses the limitations of traditional metaphysical approaches and argues that a pragmatic approach can provide a more useful and practical framework for understanding the world. He explores the implications of this approach for various fields, including science, ethics, and politics.Overall, The Metaphysics of Pragmatism is a thought-provoking and insightful exploration of the relationship between two important philosophical approaches. It is a must-read for anyone interested in philosophy, metaphysics, or pragmatism.This is a new release of the original 1927 edition.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
