La razionalità come sistema: proposte neopragmatiste

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review


The paper examines and comments on the theories of some contemporary american philosophers, who have approached the problem of rationality from the assumptions of pragmatist thought, drawing consequences however divergent. While Richard Rorty criticizes the idea that the rationality is the distinctive element of human nature, Donald Davidson, Nicholas Rescher e Hilary Putnam agree that it is an essential component, while understanding it in different ways. Their reflections show how simplistic is to identify rationality with its logic and computational component only. The comparison among these authors show a rationality that can be understood more adequately in a systemic perspective. Indeed on one hand the rationality is assumed as the system as derived from the relations and the interactions among the various faculties that characterize the human being; on the other hand it seems that rationality is part of a larger system, which originates in the relationship among different knowing subjects and the object of knowledge.
