This is an auction for AMERICAN PHILOSOPHIC NATURALISM IN THE 20th CENTURY, edited by John Ryder. reviews:

"Naturalism and realism, even more so than pragmatism constitutes a distinctively 'American' tradition in philosophy. This anthology includes many important thinkers. Kudos to the editor for finding and putting all this valuable stuff together and making it available for a modern philosophical audience. Students of early 20th century philosophy will definitely want to reference this."

"FIVE STARS!! This anthology provides great value for the reader who wants to get a rich and detailed understanding of 20th century American Pragmatic Naturalism. It accomplishes this task by (i) exploring the topic from multiple conceptual perspectives, and (ii) through the eyes of a large variety of authors. Additionally, each part and section of this work is benefitted by informative introductions by the editor. Highly recommended."

"This comprehensive collection, bringing together significant essays by leading philosophers of the 20th century, represents one prominent school of American thought: philosophic naturalism. Naturalism holds that nature is objective and can be studied to gain knowledge that is not determined by methodology, perspective, belief, or theory. For the naturalist, "nature" is an all-encompassing concept; nothing is other than natural and any notion of a supernatural realm is rejected. Certain nonmaterial aspects of human existence - thoughts, feelings, meanings, values, beliefs, ideals, and free will - are included in the naturalist's approach."
