This chapter discusses the relation between pragmatism, Hegel, and the neo-analytic interest in pragmatism. Idealism is an ingredient in the emergence of classical American pragmatism and, in different ways, in analytic neopragmatism. There is a reciprocal relation between the analytic concerns with pragmatism and with Hegel. The analytic interest in appropriating Hegel sometimes leads toward pragmatism and, conversely, the analytic interest in pragmatism sometimes leads toward Hegel. Much of the debate about pragmatism and among pragmatists concerns nonepistemological issues. J. E. Smith, a scholar of American pragmatism, denies that pragmatism can be fairly understood as a specific form of empiricism, or even, more generally, as extending the modern preoccupation with epistemology. The contrary view, recently stated by Rescher, which is that pragmatism represents a novel approach to the problem of knowledge, seems more plausible.
