Abstract

Can a Pragmatist Recite a Preface to a Twenty Volume Suicide Note? Or Insurrectionist Challenges to Pragmatism— Walker, Child, and Locke leonard harris Purdue University al ain lock e’s version of pr agm atism, critical pragmatism, provides a way to see how a philosophy contributes resources for the abused, subjugated, and humiliated facing existential crisis and impossible odds of relief. That is, it provides reasoning methods, terms, words, depictions, explanations, queries, dispositions, spirit, and conceptual categories as resources. I will argue that a viable philosophy should provide resources and reasoning methods that make the management of abjection and existential crisis viable, given impossible odds of relief; it should be encoded with, among other features, the sort of spirit needed to recite a Preface to a Twenty Volume Suicide Note, that is, a philosophic orientation that gives credence to epideictic rhetoric, imagination, and insur- rection. To this end, using Locke as a starting point, I argue against Socratic reasoning methods. I argue for an insurrectionist conception of philosophy, namely, a philosophy born of struggle. I leave open the question of whether a pragmatist can recite a Preface to a Twenty Volume Suicide Note. Locke I consider Locke a sojourning creator
