Shook and Paulo Ghiraldelli, Jr. A scholarly journal, like any intellectual enterprise, has meaning only insofar as it contributes to efforts to resolve some practical problem. This journal means to foster communication and build community among scholars interested in applying pragmatic methods to their problems, in all areas of philosophy and across other disciplines.
