Embodying Pragmatism: Richard Shusterman's Philosophy and Literary Theory

Usually despatches within 3-5 days.


Embodying Pragmatism is the first monograph in English devoted to Richard Shusterman, an internationally renowned philosopher and one of today’s most innovative thinkers in pragmatism and aesthetics. The book presents a comprehensive account of Shusterman’s principal philosophical ideas concerning pragmatism, aesthetics, and literary theory (including such themes as interpretation, aesthetic experience, popular art, and human embodiment – culminating in his proposal of a new discipline called «somaesthetics»). As Shusterman’s philosophical writings involve a dialogue with both analytic and continental traditions, this monograph not only offers a critical vision of contemporary pragmatist thought but also situates Shusterman and pragmatism within the current state of theory.
