TELIZ, Ronald. John Dewey: A perspective of his Concept of Truth. arete [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.2, pp. 241-264. ISSN 1016-913X.
Rorty proposes his view as being an heir of pragmatism, such as J. Deweys, emphasizing that it stems, among other things, from the pragmatist notion of truth. Differing from many of Rortys ideas, I attempt to expound some notions I deem relevant in J. Deweys philosophy, and especially discuss some aspects of his concept of truth. I plan to show that Deweys pragmatism takes up some traces of our everyday concept of truth, related to correspondence, but that this does not imply an engagement with a robust notion of truth. At the same time, I believe that the acceptance of such traces, although it does not suppose a definition or clear explanation regarding the "content" of truth, suffices to distinguish between truths normative aspect and any justificationist view that may operate as knowledges epistemic support.
