Pragmatism is a philosophical approach that tests any belief or theory by virtue of it’s practical use. In this recorded summary of lectures provided by Librivox, groundbreaking psychologist, philosopher and religious thinker William James, lays Pragmatism out in clear detail, with arguments given for why the system excels when compared to other competing theories. Developed in the late 19th century by a group consisting of James and chief advocate Charles Sanders Pierce, Pragmatism was was designed to test theoretical concepts against the final authority of actual experience, thus making it easy to adapt or reconfigure a hypothesis if it couldn’t be applied in a practical way. In short, the usefulness of an idea was paramount to these thinkers, with a verification process that influenced the development of other fields in the 20th century, such as psychology and social science theory.
