A Philosophy of Culture

The Scope of Holistic Pragmatism

A Philosophy of Culture: The Scope of Holistic Pragmatism (Princeton University Press, 2004), by Morton White, Professor Emeritus in the School of Historical Studies, is an original and distinctive examination of central issues in the philosophy of science, of religion, of art, of history, of law, of politics, and of morality. In this sweeping philosophical reflection, White approaches twentieth century views and ideas from a holistic standpoint, bridging the traditional gulf between analytic and synthetic truth as well as that between moral and scientific belief.
