Contemporary Pragmatism is a new interdisciplinary, international journal (inaugurated in June 2004) for discussions of applying pragmatism, broadly understood, to today’s issues. This journal will consider articles about pragmatism written from the standpoint of any tradition and perspective, but it will concentrate on original explorations of pragmatism and pragmatism’s relations with humanism, naturalism, and analytic philosophy. The journal welcomes both pragmatism-inspired research and criticisms of pragmatism. CP encourages interdisciplinary efforts, establishing bridges between pragmatic philosophy and, for example, theology, psychology, pedagogy, sociology, medicine, economics, political science, or international relations.
