What Is Pragmatism in Brazil Today?
Ghiraldelli, Paulo; Carr, Cody
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v24 n6 p499-514 Nov 2005
This paper analyses the relations between Pragmatism and Brazilian culture, nowadays defined as a plural culture. It shows that the introduction of Pragmatism into Brazilian educational movements in the past actually made such culture much more receptive to pragmatist ideas. After discussing the concepts of truth and minimalism on Richard Rorty's "Philosophical Papers," the authors conclude that Brazilian education today is receptive to the conception in which new narratives can be used as a powerful instrument to change the world.
