Ebook description:

A daring and modern research that rewrites the story of American pragmatism. Emancipating Pragmatism is a radical rereading of Emerson that posits African- American tradition, literature, and jazz because the very continuation and embodiment of pragmatic thought and democratic custom. It traces Emerson’s philosophical legacy by means of the 19th and 20th centuries to find how Emersonian thought continues to tell problems with race, aesthetics, and poetic discourse. Emerson’s pragmatism derives from his abolitionism, Michael Magee argues, and any pragmatic thought that aspires towards democracy can’t ignore and should reckon with its racial roots. Magee appears to be like on the ties between pragmatism and African-American tradition as they manifest themselves in key texts and actions, equivalent to William Carlos Williams’s poetry; Ralph Ellison’s discourse in Invisible Man and Juneteenth and his essays on jazz; the poetic works of Robert Creeley, Amiri Baraka, and Frank O’Hara; in addition to the “new jazz” being solid at golf equipment like The Five Spot in New York. Ultimately, Magee calls into query conventional maps of pragmatist lineage and ties pragmatism to the avant-garde American custom. Michael Magee teaches on the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence
