Step 30: Pragmatism (with L)

Mister Lisa and Ryder discuss William James’ pragmatism, and how verified truth works with personal truth.

Digging into William James’ notions of Truth in “Pragmatism” I had a conversation with Mister Lisa about philosophy and truth, and how it operates between being objective and subjective, personal and yet verifiable. Our conversation ranges from practical uses of truth, as an observable action, and common sense or illogic and relativism, which means we talk about other philosophers, Christianity, and even end up discussing mushrooms and electrons.
