9780773546127: The Philosophy of Gesture: Completing Pragmatists' Incomplete Revolution

In everyday reasoning - just as in science and art - knowledge is acquired more by "doing" than with long analyses. What do we "do" when we discover something new? How can we define and explore the pattern of this reasoning, traditionally called "synthetic"? Following in the steps of classic pragmatists, especially C.S. Pierce, Giovanni Maddalena's Philosophy of Gesture revolutionizes the pattern of synthesis through the ideas of change and continuity and proposes "gesture" as a new tool for synthesis. Defining gesture as an action with a beginning and an end that carries on a meaning, Maddalena explains that it is a dense blending of all kinds of phenomena - feelings and vague ideas, actual actions, habits of actions - and of signs - icons, indexes, and symbols. When the blending of phenomena and signs is densest, the gesture is "complete," and its power of introducing something new in knowledge is at its highest level. Examples of complete gestures are religious liturgies, public and private rites, public and private actions that establish an identity, artistic performances, and hypothesizing experiments. A departure from a traditional Kantian framework for understanding the nature and function of reason, The Philosophy of Gesture proposes an approach that is more attuned with our ordinary way of reasoning and of apprehending new knowledge.

About the Author:

Giovanni Maddalena is professor of philosophy at the University of Molise.

Review:

The Philosophy of Gesture is a major book, certainly one of the most important in the field for the last twenty years, one that will definitely add to the pragmatist corpus as a genuine primary reference.” Mathias Girel, École Normale Supérieure, Paris

Rarely these days are philosophy books both bold and sweeping, but Maddalena’s The Philosophy of Gesture is both. The conclusion of the book is less the close of a philosophical investigation and more a request for others to take up the project of completing pragmatists’ incomplete revolution.” Maddalena’s book is brimming with ideas and opening up new horizons of research.” Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society

With The Philosophy of Gesture Maddalena depicts an innovative epistemic tool for our everyday reasoning, opening a whole new horizon of research in various fields, from theoretical philosophy to ethics, from psychology to the social sciences.” Cognitio
