      If Hegel’s absolute idealism consists in an attempt to rationalize an organic concept of nature, then it should be based upon his philosophy of nature. Yet, in the mature system, the philosophy of nature comes after the first part of the system, the science of logic, which provides the foundation for speculative philosophy.   William James on Pragmatism. William James is the most famous philosopher of pragmatism and the scholar who made pragmatism itself famous.

James argued that ideas and beliefs have value to us only when they work.

    This book, James's last sustained work in philosophy, moves towards its own unique form of idealism and establishes James as a thinker in a large manner. The book seems to me to rest uneasily with his pragmatism at many places. "A Pluralistic Universe" is a provocative and moving work by a major American thinker.
