Symposia Europe and American Pragmatism: Influences and Interactions


Rosa M. Calcaterra, Roberto Frega and Giovanni Maddalena

Full text

1Together with the members and promoters of the Associazione Culturale Pragma, we very pleased to celebrate the third anniversary of its foundation with the launching of a new journal devoted to the study of American philosophy, the European Journal of Pragmatism and American Philosophy. It is, in fact, a particularly important achievement which comes to strengthen our confidence in the positive relationships among a wide international group of academics and scholars that already produced a number of philosophical conferences and interdisciplinary seminars.

2The European Journal of Pragmatism and American Philosophy’s cultural project naturally reflects the guidelines of Pragma, and more specifically – as announced in the ‘welcome’ of the journal’s web site – it provides a forum for exchanging ideas and framing interdisciplinary research networks within pragmatist tradition and its relationship with European philosophy.

3In this first issue of the journal, such a project is implemented with a number of essays by members of the scientific board, forming the SYMPOSIA section, while the ESSAYS section hosts a paper by Rosaria Egidi – a distinguished analytical philosopher, whose contribution is reflective of the interactions between this movement of thought and American classical philosophy. The improvement of the dialogue among different philosophical traditions is, in fact, one of the main purposes of EJPAP, evidently carried out in the varieties of subjects and field of inquiry represented in each essay of the present issue.

4We all look forward to creative and productive developments.
