Abstract

Making this world a home is an existential and cooperative task. A humanist re-reading of philosophical pragmatism suggests critical and transformative perspectives on science, religion, and the way we live together. Its pluralist outlook allows for an encompassing humanism that bridges the gap between believers and non-believers. Moreover, it is a way of life.
