Pragmatism and Social Science Methodology
Headed to a Pragmatism and Social Sciences workshop today and am very much looking forward to it. Questions of philosophy’s relationships and contributions to methodologies of ‘the human sciences’ have long been central for me, so am glad to have a chance to discuss this with others in a format crossing up the disciplines. Genealogy has long been a player in these debates, so it’s nice to see pragmatism (the other tradition I focus my work on), coming into play again here, in a serious and considered way.
Speaking of crossing up, the meeting is at Hopkins, so I get to see a little bit of Baltimore, which will be nice, because aside from a visit during a dreadful APA, I’ve never much been before. In my mind, Baltimore is practically synonymous with John Waters.
