Richard J. Bernstein was the 2013 Selzer Visiting Philosopher and gave a lecture on “The Pragmatic Turn” (also see his 2010 book by the same name) on Feb. 13, 2013 at Beloit College. In it he argued that many philosophical themes, both continental and analytic, from the past 150 years are derived from classical American pragmatists. Enjoy!

I gave Bernstein’s book on Evil such a bad review that the journal’s editors took me off their list, but he has an interesting legacy as a teacher of professors.
