THE ANTI-DOGMAS OF EMPIRICIST-PURITAN
Languages of publication
James’s concept of empirical relations is an attempt to blur the alleged boundary between the field of metaphysics and natural science as well as to discover the realm of pure experience. This paramount reality is an outward world compatible with the details of lived experience and the whole context of associated realities. The status of the principles of radical empiricism (the postulate, the statement of fact and the generalized conclusion) is debatable. Is the doctrine of “pure experience” an actual anti-dogmatic “philosophic attitude” serving to explain the nature of knowledge as well as to understand pragmatism from an epistemological perspective or is it a fundamental doctrine, independent of pragmatism as such?
