Anti-Foundationalist Practices of Truth: Foucault, Nietzsche, and James

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The chapter explores comparatively the attention to the practical dimension that-each in his own way-Michel Foucault, Friedrich Nietzsche, and the classic pragmatist thinker William James pay when confronted with the challenge of providing a non-skeptical response to the relativist stance on truth that arose in the post-Kantian age. Particular focus will be given to the extent to which these three authors conceived of the practical framework as the only one that allows us to meaningfully address and determine truth.
