Editorial Reviews


...a major contribution to the philosophical literature on public deliberation, and should consequently find an interested audience beyond the circles of American Philosophy.
–Semiotic Inquiry

...a delight to read. The account Cheryl Misak gives of knowledge and truth is sophisticated, but readily understood.
–Robert L. Frazier, Christ Church, Oxford

Cheryl Misak develops and defends a lucid, well-informed, and attractive argument...valuable reading for anyone with serious interests in liberalism, democracy or truth.
–Henry Richardson, Georgetown University

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Robert Talisse on October 15, 2003
Format: Hardcover
In this book, Cheryl Misak develops and defends a Peircean conception of truth and a pragmatist moral epistemology. She then shows how a proper understanding of core epistemic concepts such as belief, truth, and inquiry commits us to a radically democratic and deliberative politics. Finally, she shows how her Peircean politics can respond forcefully to challenges from radical anti-democrats (such as Schmitt). This is by far the best book on pragmatism and democracy written in in the past twenty years. None of the recent work on Dewey's politics comes close. An absolutely essential read for anyone interested in democracy, deliberation, or pragmatism.
