Title: Pragmatism in John Henry Cardinal Newman
Author: Mitchell, Cyprus Richard
Date: 1913
Publisher: University of Missouri
Abstract: The purpose of this essay is to discuss the pragmatic implications of Newman's Philosophy. We propose to deal first with the point of antagonism found for Newman and the Pragmatists in 'Rationalism'; second, to analyze the grounds for the revolt; third, to discuss Newman's relation to the Pragmatic test of truth, using his 'Development of Doctrine' as the basis for our comparison; fourth, to discuss Newman's theory of belief and the Pragmatic 'Will to believe'; fifth, to analyze and define this faith relation and discuss the identity of the two doctrines; sixth, we shall give a general discussion, dealing with the 'Illative Sense' and the relation of Newman and James in their doctrines of 'certitude'.
