/Review: Paul Giladi, ed., Responses to Naturalism: Critical Perspectives from Idealism and Pragmatism (New York, NY, Routledge, 2020), 330 pages./

Although Bergson does not have a prominent place in this outstanding new volume of essays edited by Paul Giladi, Responses to Naturalism: Critical Perspectives from Idealism and Pragmatism, the book helped me follow through from my ongoing study of Bergson’s work.  The book shows the development and continued dominance of the naturalistic position in philosophy. The book also shows the increasing efforts by contemporary philosophers to make a creative use of the history of philosophy in order to engage with contemporary naturalism and to appropriate what is of value in it and in other philosophical traditions in moving forward. The book suggests how various strands of idealism and pragmatism may have much to contribute in formulating alternatives to or enriching philosophical naturalism.
