Abstract

Contemporary Pragmatism Vol. 7, No. 1 (June 2010), 191­195 Editions Rodopi © 2010 Philosophers ignorant of their history often err in their judgments as well as falter in moving forth the discipline. After all, respect for one's history is part of the self-reflection of a discipline concerned about its assumptions and foundations. In the words of Josiah Royce, "faithfulness of history is the beginning of creative wisdom." Royce argued that philosophy must respect its past because "no fresh beginning is worth making unless the ages have fertilized the forest soil where the new saplings are to grow."1 In a time when philosophers in countries in Europe and Central Europe are becoming engaged in a discovery of the works of American philosophers including James, Dewey, Mead, and Royce, and are, in fact writing articles about the ideas of these classical American thinkers, it is appropriate that we become aware of the history of such interest and the implications it might have for the dialogue today. Thus, this book is timely and provides an overview of the reception of Pragmatist thought in France, but especially of the thought and work of William James. The book will be of special interest
