Abstract

Pragmatist Feminism as Philosophic Activism: The {R}evolution of Grace Lee Boggs danielle l ake Grand Valley State University How Do We Reimagine? We reimagine by combining activism with philosophy. . . . We have to see every crisis as both a danger and an opportunity. It’s a danger because it does so much damage to our lives, to our institu- tions, to all that we have expected. But it’s also an opportunity for us to become creative; to become the new kind of people that are needed at such a huge period of transition. —Boggs, “How Do We Reimagine?” this essay seeks to a dd to the emerging dialogue about the incredibly rich and complex nature of Grace Lee Boggs’s philosophic activism by exploring the connections and tensions between her philosophic activism and pragma- tist feminism. As an Asian American immigrant with a PhD in philosophy, her life’s work has had a profound impact on the world but has received little attention from American philosophers until recently. I argue that the threads of connection between Boggs and pragmatist feminism visualize an approach to philosophic activism that can be a resource for scholar-activists committed to addressing the social justice challenges
