Abstract

In this chapter, I present the philosophical doctrine known as pragmatism, as proposed by Charles Peirce, namely, as a method of reflexion with the aim at clarifying ideas and guided at all moments by the ends of the ideas it analyzes. Pragmatism puts forward an epistemic aim with an experimental solution, and does so by following the pragmatic maxim, the underlying precept to fix a belief, and accordingly produce its corresponding habits of action.
