Humanities Press, New Jersey 1994, stor 8vo, orig. bind med omslag, xx + 167 s., engelsk tekst.
«Drawing on significant Anglo-American and Continental traditions, this book discusses the development of pragmatic thinking and brings together the diverse pragmatic traditions within philosophy, semiotics, and linguistics. It focuses especially on the contributions of Charles Peirce, Charles Morris, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Karl-Otto Apel, and Jürgen Habermas to an integrative pragmatic theory. Arens offers a comprehensive study of Habermas’ and Apel’s competing claims to provide the foundations for pragmatics and also discusses the challenges posed by Apel and Habermas by the emergence of American neo-pragmatism.»
