Introduction

In the last ten years, investigators worldwide have focused on the connections between the philosophy of classical figures in American pragmatism (e.g., William James, Charles Peirce, and John Dewey) and the Hispanic world. This book documents the results of this new and thriving area of research while also functioning as a primer that can guide and provoke further inquiry. The chapters, from North American, Spanish, and Latin American scholars, aim to fill a void in the humanities. They question gaps that never existed and instead build new bridges. The book hopes to provide the connections for a twenty-first-century dialogue between two great philosophical traditions.

Keywords: William James; Charles Peirce; John Dewey; Spanish scholars; Latin Americans; Philosophical tradition
