Cheryl Misak presents a pragmatic account of truth. C. S. Peirce, the founder of pragmatism, argued that truth is what we would agree upon, were inquiry to be pursued as far as it could fruitfully go. In the course of the past century pragmatism has remained one of the most significant movements in American philosophy. Misak's book is one of the landmark publications in recent pragmatist thought. She pays attention both to Peirce's texts and to the requirements for a suitable account of truth. This new paperback edition includes a brand-new additional chapter, along with a new preface and revised bibliography.
