Pragmatism and the Reflective Life explains the moral perspective embedded in the American pragmatist tradition and offers pragmatist moral thought as an alternative to analytic moral theory. Following the lead of John Dewey, Rosenbaum explores what it means to make the ideal of the reflective life implicit in pragmatism central to an understanding of morality. The discussion illuminates how this ideal of the reflective life captures the value of both individual autonomy and communal ideals and encourages commitment to a radically idealistic and ecumenical hope in the power of inclusive democracy and global egalitarianism.To get a feel for its wide acceptability, readers may consult Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible (New York: HarperCollins, 1999), and the series of novels by Alexander McCall Smith set in Botswana ... This essay is widely anthologized.
