Response to "Notes on Pragmatism and Scientific Realism."
House, Ernest R.
Educational Researcher, v21 n6 p18-19 Aug-Sep 1992
The main differences between pragmatism and scientific realism seem to focus on the certainty of knowledge. Pragmatists contend that one can never be entirely certain of one's beliefs, whereas scientific realists argue that progress has been, and can be, made in explaining things about the world. (SLD)
