difference between critical realism and pragmatism
[…] In the realm of truth, as well as art, man must be the measure, however finite and passing the measure may be. Abstract. Boodin 1916: 3).

Neuber Matthias, (2002), “Physics Without Pictures? Maybe his Swedish rural growing up, as it were, predestined him in terms of viewing the world from a primarily realistic point of view. Editorial Comment to Boodin, (1910), The Monist, 20, 614-5. Pragmatism is a philosophical tradition that began in the United States around 1870. Among Boodin’s fellow graduate students were the later influential realist philosophers Arthur O. Lovejoy, William Pepperell Montague, Edwin B. Holt, and Ralph Barton Perry. According to Nelson, “Boodin lived in the continual hope that times would change and that people would increasingly look to his work […] as a source of sanity, value, and enlightenment. Whereas Truth and Reality belonged to the theory of knowledge, A Realistic Universe is, Boodin writes, “a volume on metaphysics” (ibid.). 27The Monist’s editors (most probably Carus) laconically commented upon this claim by raising the following question: “If pragmatism avowedly accepts the scientific method, would it not be better to call it the ‘Philosophy of Science’?” (Editorial Comment to Boodin 1910: 614). “In art,” he maintains, “the selective activity is for the sake of permanent objects of enjoyment; in metaphysics, for the sake of understanding. Our next task will be to determine what he made out of this kind of situation. : 305). When reflecting back on the early parts of his career, W. Sellars claimed that: (Boodin 1916: 71). Boodin attempted to tackle this sort of challenge. (Boodin 1916: 389)19. He obviously knew of Peirce’s 1905 contribution for.

He writes: It was certainly this very passage that provoked the following critical comment by the journal’s editors: See, in this connection, his extended critique of James’s variant of pragmatism in Carus 1908. The change meant a change of language, a change of history and tradition. He writes: But after all, the center of interest in this religion is not the temple but the artists. In its opening paragraph the following is clarified: “Prof. 21 See esp. Yet it is important to emphasize that this does not imply a “relapse” to materialism. A certain form of, Ontologically, atoms, according to Boodin, have the status of energy centers: they must be conceived as “more or less stable dynamic clusters within dynamic systems” (, : 83). The Ostwald-Boltzmann Controvery, and Mach’s (Unnoticed) Middle-Way,”. 18 Boodin refers here implicitly to James’s Essays in Radical Empiricism from 1912.

It runs on all fours with the perfectly wise man, and with the absolutely complete experience.” (James 2017 : 82). At the same time he speaks of “my friend Royce” (1908: 303), mentions the latter’s “absolute idealism” (1908: 300) and suggests that “[i]deals may prove truer than facts”, . Their most outstanding contribution was the cooperative volume, , which appeared in 1912. This plan didn’t work out, but Boodin received a funded scholarship at nearby Brown University.

I hope that for the rest of his life he will remain as buoyant and spirited as he has ever been, and will meet with unlimited recognition. Pragmatism is a philosophical approach that evaluates theories or beliefs in terms of the success of their practical application. See, in this connection, his extended critique of James’s variant of pragmatism in Carus 1908. Regarding their relation to pragmatism, the critical realists no doubt saw certain affinities. 24On the whole, Boodin applauds the Jamesian variant of pragmatism. At any rate, Boodin’s contributions to the complex discussion of realism, pragmatism, and their mutual relationship are worth reconsidering. Critical Realism vs Idealism. experience, at any rate, seems to depend in many ways upon an extra-experiential constitution” (1916: 16). (Ibid.). He categorically distinguishes between “prediction and control of certain practical situations” (1911b: 60), on the one hand, and “nature in the abstract”, , on the other. It makes definite and articulate what was only implied before. Accordingly, metaphysics “implies, and furnishes the inspirations of, the special sciences” (ibid.). The concluding remarks of this paper are sufficiently explicit: “Personally, I have a decided liking for Professor James, and I am sure that in expressing it I voice the opinion of many. Consequently, the Jamesian reduction of truth to verification turns out to be insufficient.17. (Boodin 1909: 627). (Peirce’s paper had the title “What Pragmatism Is”). 19 of The Monist.14 In that paper, Boodin again, and more explicitly, draws the connection between pragmatism and realism. See, in this connection, Kuklick (2001: 202-3). It “deals with the common and overlapping problems, left over by the special sciences” and it “must ever be present as a regulative ideal in all our search for truth”, Just as in “Pragmatic Realism,” Boodin defines “being” in terms of energetics (cf. It will be shown that Boodin’s work underwent a development from a more or less direct form of pragmatism to a certain variant of realism, which Boodin himself called “functional” realism. (Drake et al. James William, (2017 ), Pragmatism: A New Name for Some Old Ways of Thinking, Whithorn, Anodos. All good social research has ontological foundations, which means a theory of what there is to study, even if these are not explicitly stated. The Teaching-Learning Process In Experimentalism and Pragmatism, learning is always considered to be an individual matter . (Sellars 1922: 127). Deltete Robert J., (1983), “The Energetics Controversy in Late Nineteenth Century Germany: Helm, Ostwald, and Their Critics,” PhD diss., Yale University. 21The announced critical discussion of pragmatism as “a system of philosophy” can be found in Volume No. Rather, idealism was a multifaceted movement. […] If we, however, regard the universe under the conception of plural energetic centers, which can figure in various contexts, including our cognitive context, and some at least as having meaning of their own and capable of entering into cognitive relations with us; and if, furthermore, we regard cognitive purposes as themselves energies, evolving in complexity with, and having survival value through, their control of other energies, such as the physiological, then the paradox is resolved […]. 7Boodin published eight books and more than sixty articles for journals, both in the field of theoretical philosophy (which concerns us here) and in the field of practical philosophy. It is at this very point that, according to Boodin, pragmatism and realism coincide. There were many kinds of idealism (and many pre-eminent idealists) in the United States around the 1890s, such as the Hegelian-inspired St. Louis Group around Henry C. Brokmeyer and William Harris, the “personalisms” of Borden Parker Bowne and George H. Howison and several explicitly religious versions of idealism. We will see later why. Rather, it is the driving force of natural processes and, as such, by all means knowable. ch. Lovejoy Arthur O., (1920), “Pragmatism Versus the Pragmatist,” in Durant Drake, Arthur O. Lovejoy, James B. Pratt, Arthur K. Rogers, George Santayana, Roy Wood Sellars, & Charles A. As mentioned in the introduction, there are three main types of research philosophies, namely, positivism, interpretivism, and pragmatism (realism). Critical Realism and Pragmatism in Educational Research. Ostwald Wilhelm, (1895), “Die Überwindung des wissenschaftlichen Materialismus,” Verhandlungen der Gesellschaft deutscher Naturforscher und Ärzte, 1895, 155-68. “Why,” he asks, “should a man’s soul be crowded into one system of philosophy?” (1908: 302). We have at least found a motive for our ideas seeking agreement with their intended reality, for successful adjustment in the end depends upon such agreement. While there is a pool of scholars that critical realists often draw upon (e.g. The world as we know and understand it is constructed from our perspectives and experiences, through what is 'observable'. Our next task will be to determine what he made out of this kind of situation. (Ibid. In this case, too, an Editorial Comment was attached. 46Now the striking thing about Boodin’s critique of critical realism is that it is far too selective. Roy Wood, (1924), “Critical Realism and Its Critics,”, Reflections on American Philosophy from Within. Accordingly, a fusion of pragmatism and realism seemed to be, among the younger Harvard generation. Thus, in section 2 of this paper, I shall provide some information concerning Boodin’s life and work, and, in section 3, I shall reflect on the philosophical situation in the United States during the first two decades of the twentieth century. Boodin transferred his college studies to the University of Minnesota and made acquaintance with the work of William James. Edward Gleason Spaulding, another of the new realists, even went as far as to assert that consciousness and the process of knowing as such are “eliminable” (Spaulding in Holt et al. More generally, “[p]roperties have no meaning for science, except as energy determinations, characteristics within energy systems” (, is “a fundamental characteristic of energy systems” (, of relativity (without mentioning Einstein himself) Boodin points out that “[w]e know of no absolute position in space or absolute system of relations”, and that “[o]ur standards of measurement, whether of energy, time, or space, are all alike pragmatic”, From all this, however, it does not follow that things are “created or ‘faked’” (1916: 70). to the materialistic point of view. James’s books and articles published during the first decade of the twentieth century contain many realistic tendencies, and not less than seven of the leading realists – Drake, Montague, Perry, Pratt, Santayana, Sellars, and Strong – have repeatedly stated that their philosophical position was determined by James.” (Werkmeister 1949: 371). For a comprehensive account of Boodin’s life and work, see Nelson 1984 (on which I primarily draw h. John Elof Boodin was born in Pjätteryd, Småland (Southern Sweden), in 1869. In James’s words, the same message reads thus: “The ‘absolutely’ true, meaning what no farther experience will ever alter, is that ideal vanishing-point towards which we imagine that all our temporary truths will some day converge. James William, (1912), Essays in Radical Empiricism, New York, Longmans, Green. The functional aspect as such can already be found in. Consequently, both idealism and materialism are, in his view, variants of “dogmatism” (. John Elof, (1908), “Philosophic Tolerance. Consequently, “we cannot resolve reality, whether conscious or unconscious, into bundles of perception, or into experience of any form, altogether. It “deals with the common and overlapping problems, left over by the special sciences” and it “must ever be present as a regulative ideal in all our search for truth” (ibid.). However kind the new world has been and whatever my success within it, the loss of my own community has always haunted me. & Edward G. Spaulding (eds), (1910), “The Program and First Platform of Six Realists,” The Journal of Philosophy, Psychology and Scientific Methods, 7, 393-401. (Boodin 1934: 147-8). He believed in eternal truth and rejected its relativization by the pragmatists.11. The principle aim of this paper was to establish “functional” realism as a “third way” within the realist movement. He points out: While such a theory, with abundant illustrations from natural science, accounts for how knowledge can control the world of processes, it leaves us in the dark as to the real question – the relevancy of knowledge to its object. , vol. Going in the very same direction, Montague stated that “the existence of a thing is not correlated with or dependent upon the fact that anybody experiences it, perceives it, conceives it, or is in any way aware of it” (Montague in Holt, 1910: 396). Here at least the artist has the sense of doing something, for in the other temples there is nothing to do but contemplate that which is, whether beauty or desert. 19 of. In his opinion, “the doctrine commonly put forward as ‘pragmatism’ may be said to be a changeling, substituted almost in the cradle” (Lovejoy 1920: 80). 32Boodin’s own solution to that problem amounts to the endorsement of contemporary energetics, as it was primarily established in the German-speaking area by thinkers such as Wilhelm Ostwald and Georg Helm.16 On Boodin’s reading, energetics provides us with the essential tools for bridging the gap between “the” subjective and “the” objective. It was the greatest disappointment of his life that this did not happen.” (Nelson 1984: 145). […] The reality we seek to know may ultimately be more experience – yes, we must be willing to have it turn out to be an absolute unity of thought, if the procedure of truth leads that way. The functional aspect as such can already be found in A Realistic Universe, i.e., six years before Sellars made his claim. 13 In James’s words, the same message reads thus: “The ‘absolutely’ true, meaning what no farther experience will ever alter, is that ideal vanishing-point towards which we imagine that all our temporary truths will some day converge. 25In 1910, Boodin’s paper “Pragmatic Realism” appeared in Volume No. Boodin John Elof, (1910), “Pragmatic Realism,” The Monist, 20, 602-14. 44In order to prevent misunderstandings let me emphasize that I do not claim that Boodin simply took over one of Sellars’s most prominent ideas. 1, edited by George P. Adams & William Pepperell Montague, New York, Macmillan,135-66. For further details, see Werkmeister 1949, chapters 5-9. (Ibid. he provides the reader with the following picture: Boodin is extremely enthusiastic about the prospects of this whole enterprise. . It will be shown that Boodin’s philosophical development ran through various stages, beginning with more or less “orthodox” pragmatism and ending with what he labeled “functional” realism. Moreover, the little town housed around one hundred Swedish immigrants, which in turn helped Boodin to work for the Episcopal Church during the first few years. Idealism, for example, is based on the early writings of Plato. As Nelson points out in his biographical sketch: In 1897, Boodin eventually entered Harvard (on a Hopkins scholarship). 12It is a well-known fact that, in the further course of the twentieth century, pragmatism became the predominant philosophical current in the United States (cf. Pragmatism on Education Envision Develop and apply knowledge and become an individual who can exercise choice and take responsibility for their actions. And he had no money. His major contributions to theoretical philosophy are the following: the 1911 book Truth and Reality; the 1916 book A Realistic Universe; and an article published in 1934 (in The Philosophical Review) titled “Functional Realism.” In Truth and Reality, Boodin explicitly argues for what he calls “pragmatic realism” (see Boodin 1911a, esp. Section 5 concludes the paper with some critical comments. To be sure, the bifurcation of thing and environment figured prominently within the framework of new realism.20 However, from the standpoint of critical realism, there is no such bifurcation. Ostwald 1895) energetics (or “energism”) qualifies as an. Besides idealism, neo-realism, and pragmatism there existed a further influential movement, namely so-called critical realism. Interestingly enough, the dedication of that book reads as follows: “To my friend and teacher William James, not the late but the ever living and inspiring genius of American philosophy, this book is affectionately dedicated.” The five years later published Realistic Universe, then, is dedicated to “my friend and teacher Josiah Royce.” In programmatic terms, Boodin argues in that book for what he now calls “pragmatic energism” (see Boodin 1916, esp. It is, by the way, quite difficult to determine what the distinctive characteristic of “European” pragmatism could be. 15 of, , published in 1909. Boodin died in 1950. “Why,” he asks, “should a man’s soul be crowded into one system of philosophy?” (1908: 302). For example, physical properties such as weight, for Boodin, do not exist in the abstract. Boodin does not refer to James’s lecture series in his paper, but he mentions the latter’s “favorite principle of pragmatism” (Boodin 1908: 305). Its origins are often attributed to the philosophers Charles Sanders Peirce, William James, and John Dewey. As for Boodin’s philosophical work, it should be mentioned first that he is characterized by Shook as one of the twelve “major figures” (Shook 1998: xiii) of pragmatism. Accordingly, science, from the pragmatist point of view, is “a systematic sorting of experience in the realization of our interests” (, The following passages from James’s 1907 lecture series might corroborate this diagnosis: “Pragmati. And indeed, it were (among others) some of Royce’s best students who stood at the forefront of a new movement in early twentieth-century American philosophy. See Randall 1966. (Boodin 1910: 602-3). idealism - seeking perfection in everything, philosophy that the mind is the only reality. Sixty-Second Philosopher (Seek to 49:30): Ian Shoales speeds through the origins of pragmatism and its misapprehension throughout American history. “In it,” Sellars writes, “both pragmatism of a chastened sort and neo-realism of a less doctrinaire type may ultimately find the satisfaction of their insights.” (Ibid.). : 151). However, the prevailing attitude toward pragmatism in the critical realist camp was unfavorable. It is quite hard to understand how this should motivate a realist position. We must confess that we do not share the enthusiasm of the pragmatism movement, and not join its ranks. It was particularly Sellars who, in his Evolutionary Naturalism, insisted upon the interrelatedness of physical objects, perceiving organisms and their environment.21 Furthermore, the entire functional idea is obviously prefigured in Sellars’s writings. , Chicago and New York, Rand McNally and Company. Section 4 discusses Boodin’s specific understanding, blending and eventual disentanglement of pragmatist and realist ideas. Misak Cheryl, (2013), The American Pragmatists, Oxford, Oxford University Press. He categorically distinguishes between “prediction and control of certain practical situations” (1911b: 60), on the one hand, and “nature in the abstract” (ibid. Pihlström Sami, (2010), “Nordic Pragmatism,” European Journal of Pragmatism and American Philosophy, 2 (1), 108-20. But the paradox, often pointed out by realists themselves, that the object must be both in and out of experience, must remain an absolute mystery so long as we deal with meanings as subjective pictures, inclosed within the magic circle of epiphenomenal consciousness. Chapter III of A Realistic Universe is titled “Pragmatic Energism.” By “energism” Boodin understands a thoroughly realistic interpretation of the concept of energy. Strong (eds), Essays in Critical Realism: A Co-Operative Study in the Problem of Knowledge, London, Macmillan, 35-81. Thus “pragmatic” realism should be seen as an independent variant within the realist camp. In fact, the actual problem is to understand why Boodin thinks his own approach needs to be so sharply distinguished from critical realism. Whether we can realize it or not only the historical outcome of the pragmatic test can prove.” (Ibid. Thus in an article from 1905, titled “The Realism of Pragmatism,” Dewey points out: Speaking of the matter only for myself, the presuppositions and tendencies of pragmatism are distinctly realistic; not idealistic in any sense in which idealism connotes or is connoted by the theory of knowledge. Rather, idealism was a multifaceted movement. As, on the other hand, Werkmeister makes it particularly clear, Royce’s variant o, Before discussing the details and the development of Boodin’s philosophical position, it is instructive to take a brief look at the surrounding philosophical context. It is for this reason that Boodin assumes that things cannot be infinitely divisible. Philosophy like poetry and art, when it is genuine, is only the expression of a mood of the soul, and it is not always for the artist to tell what mood is most significant. is that pragmatism is the pursuit of practicality over aesthetic qualities; a concentration on facts rather than emotions or ideals while realism is a concern for fact or reality and rejection of the impractical and visionary. Moreover, classical pragmatism had shifted to so-called neo-pragmatism, especially with the appearance of C. I. Lewis’s, is that it is far too selective. In contrast to both idealism and materialism this kind of metaphysics is driven by criticism instead of dogmatism in terms of method. Moreover, one might wonder how ‘functional’ realism is related to pragmatism. Boodin John Elof, (1934), “Functional Realism,” The Philosophical Review, 43, 147-78. 16 For a comprehensive reconstruction of the energetic world-view, see Deltete 1983. Recall that James’s Pragmatism had appeared in 1907. This has been shown by … Moreover, his Harvard student fellows, such as Holt, Montague or Perry, attempted to interpret James’s account of pragmatism within a realistic framework. : 225). Suzuki 1962). The pragmatic element primarily pertains to the dynamic aspect of energetically conceived reality. 47Regarding pragmatism, it is interesting to note that Boodin does not make any mention of it in “Functional Realism.” To be sure, at two places he casually refers to James (1934: 161) and to Dewey (1934: 171). Background: Mixed methods approaches are now extensively employed in nursing and other health care research. They both assume that to say that substances and qualities exist independently of the environment has a meaning. Lovejoy Arthur O., (1908), “The Thirteen Pragmatisms,” Journal of Philosophy, Psychology and Scientific Methods, 5, 5-12. “Truth in science is what gives us the maximum possible sum of satisfaction, taste included, but consistency both with previous truth and with novel fact is always the most imperious claimant.” (Ibid. Moreover, classical pragmatism had shifted to so-called neo-pragmatism, especially with the appearance of C. I. Lewis’s Mind and the World Order in 1929 (cf. in pragmatism. Anyway, the actually important point is that by ‘realism’ he essentially understands an “epistemological attitude” (, . Critical Realism (CR) is a philosophy of science that is based around a number of ontological principles. At any rate, Boodin starts his article with the following characterization: In the first place, pragmatism as a doctrine is so simple and so old as a matter of scientific procedure that it is impossible to understand why so much dust should have been raised about it by its opponents. For him, as for James, truth, “so far as we are finite seekers are concerned, is a limit which we are far from having realized. 1 For a comprehensive account of Boodin’s life and work, see Nelson 1984 (on which I primarily draw here). “The truth of an idea or plan,” he writes, “must be tested by the procedure to which it leads.”, . For one thing, he stressed that Truth and Reality and the present volume “furnish a survey of the field of general philosophy from the point of view of pragmatic realism” (Boodin 1916: vii). It is apparent that Boodin seeks some sort of “idealized” as well as “humanized” conception of reality and truth. On the whole, Boodin’s philosophical work fell into oblivion with the death of its author. For him. At that time the editor asked him to make a reply to comments on his views in the editorial article which appeared in the following issue [cf. 1910: 399). an exposition of his views without reference to the controversy in question.” (Editorial Comment to Boodin 1910: 614). Royce’s Gifford Lectures, delivered at the University of Aberdeen in two series in 1899 and 1900, proved to be particularly impactful. This becomes particularly clear from Lovejoy’s contribution to the 1920 essay volume. For example, physical properties such as weight, for Boodin, do not exist in the abstract. However, as Sellars repeatedly stressed (see, for example, Sellars 1924: 383), there existed two “wings” within the critical realist movement: a metaphysical (“essentialist”) wing, primarily represented by the work of Santayana, and an empirical (“naturalist”) wing, primarily represented by Sellars’s own contributions. Critical Realism and Pragmatism. As concerns his primary sources of inspiration, he mentions James, Royce and “the vitalizing influence in our country of its great teacher, John Dewey, and the Chicago School” (1916: ix). is therefore wrongheaded.18 For Boodin, “our experience, at any rate, seems to depend in many ways upon an extra-experiential constitution” (1916: 16). 19(1), 83–95 (2012) CrossRef Google Scholar For further details, see Werkmeister 1949, chapters 5-9. We will see later why. “In it,” Sellars writes, “both pragmatism of a chastened sort and neo-realism of a less doctrinaire type may ultimately find the satisfaction of their insights.”, .

In, he changes this sort of attitude in favor of what might be called a. of metaphysics. Boodin 1916: 33). Its verity is in fact an event, a process: the process namely of its verifying itself, its veri-fication.” (James  2017: 74). Thought is so wedded to things that things cannot exist without being thought. The principle aim of this paper was to establish “functional” realism as a “third way” within the realist movement. 43Much the same is asserted by Boodin when we writes: As opposed to the assumption of things in themselves with properties in themselves, functional realism holds in common with present science that the bifurcation of thing and environment is vicious, that things exist only in fields, in mutuality with other things, and that they have properties only in their dynamic interrelations. James’s conception of philosophy stands, according to Boodin, in that very tradition. 37Just as in “Pragmatic Realism,” Boodin defines “being” in terms of energetics (cf. The founder of Pragmatism is Mr. Charles S. Peirce, and its standard bearer, Prof. William James of Harvard. This paper joins a broad discussion of the relationship between John Dewey's pragmatism and the tradition of critical theory. Thus the weight of a body varies at different points of the surface of the earth; it is, in other words, a function of the attraction of the earth. 26It is clearly Royce’s version of idealism to which Boodin is alluding in the last two sentences of that passage. , as it was primarily established in the German-speaking area by thinkers such as Wilhelm Ostwald and Georg Helm. This becomes obvious from his rejection of Kantian “things-in-themselves” (cf. As a programmatic characterization, this diagnosis is false. He believed in eternal truth and rejected its relativization by the pragmatists. This plan didn’t work out, but Boodin received a funded scholarship at nearby Brown University. In either case the soul is endeavoring to create an objective counterpart to its tendencies or needs, to mirror itself, become conscious of itself.

On the other hand, he explicitly demarcates his position from “the movement sometimes called ‘the new realism’” (ibid.). It is simply the application of the ordinary method of the scientific testing of an hypothesis to philosophic hypotheses as well. is obviously prefigured in Sellars’s writings. XIV).
