The theme of the 2002 meeting in Kraków, Poland, also the title of this volume, makes reference to Derridas concept of deconstruction- but the papers do not usually treat it in the Derridean sense. Instead, the contributors of the 23 essays presented by Ryder (philosophy, State U.

of New York, US) and Wilkoszewska (philosophy and aesthetics, Jagiellonian U., Poland) primarily see deconstruction as a part of John Deweys project of reconstruction, a project which Dewey explained can be nothing less than the work of developing, of forming, of producing (in the literal sense of that word) the intellectual instrumentalities which will progressively direct inquiry into the deeply and inclusively human—that is to say moral—facts of the present scene and situation.

Contributors address pragmatic themes involving democracy, ethics, aesthetics, epistemology, and the analytic tradition. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
