Reviews
"I do not know of any other work that is fully devoted to the relationship between the theory of knowledge and pragmatism. Thus Rescher provides something new: a coherent picture of how classical epistemological problems can be viewed through the lens of a sophisticated, contemporary, pragmatic point of view . . . His discussions of Idealism, Realism, and Internal Realism, and Truth are superior to anything in the existing literature . . . There is no other work like it -- it is needed."
