Abstract

The author recalls several central features of Peter Hare's deep admiration for William James's philosophical approach, above all, James's pragmatist defense of "natural realism." He draws upon a number of Peter's writings to exhibit this singular person's creative appropriation of key Jamesian insights and themes. At the center of this essay is a sketch of how Peter attempts to conceive of human knowing as a natural process and, moreover, how he suggests pluralism, naturalism, and realism might be seen as mutually supportive doctrines.
