From the Back Cover
This work completes Ross's trilogy examining the inexhaustible complexity of the world and our relation to our surroundings. The philosophical viewpoint Ross examines in Locality and Practical Judgment is related to the American naturalist and pragmatist traditions and to the views of many twentieth-century European philosophers. It bears affinities with historicism and existentialism, insofar as both emphasize aspects of human finiteness. What is new is the systematic development of locality in application to practical experience. Ross applies locality not only to finite beings but also to their conditions and limitations - even the limits have limits; even the conditions are conditioned. The consequence of the doubly reflexive locality is inexhaustibility where inexhaustibility is equivalent to multiple locality.
