We are a new body and a new spirit in the world. JOHN DEWEY O i. PHILOSOPHY AND THE SOCIAL ORDER 1 There are myths and myths. Some are inspiriting; some are benumbing. Nature myths, at least in their first form, inspire because theyare spontaneous responses of imagination to the scene that confronts it. Myths of literary criticism and his toric interpretation are deadening. They do not enliven; they force subject-matter into ready-made patterns and thus dull sensitivity of perception. Such myths grow up in interpreta tions of past philosophies and always tend to overlay and con ceal the realities of past reflection. They flourish in those lit erary versions by which the ideas of philosophers reach the public for philosophers themselves are usually too much pre occupied with the technique, the professional rules, of their calling to have a public except one another. Even such new movements as pragmatism and instrumentalism already have their accretion of myths which stand in place of the ideas themselves. Probably the unfortunate names themselves in vite the creation and encourage the spread of these myths. The names account alike for some of the vogue of the doctrines and for some of the condemnation they receive. One reading of the myth is embodied in the words which form the caption of what I am writing. They are borrowed from Lewis Mumford's The Golden Day; they sum up his es sential criticism. William James, he says, gave this atti tude of compromise and acquiescence a name: he called it pragmatism. Not content with this epithet, he headlines the idea of acquiescence; the pragmatism that followed it was a paralysis. And again, pragmatism was a blessed anaes thetic. What is denoted by this attitude? And in what did James acquiesce? The America of his own time, according to Mr. Mumford, the America of the Gilded Age that followed From The New Republic, Jan. 5, 1927; published under the title The PragmaticAcquiescence. 435 436 PHILOSOPHY AND THE SOCIAL ORDER the Civil War. More concerned with making clear his pattern than he is with William James he goes as far as to say, James was only warming over again in philosophy the hash of every day experience in the Gilded Age. And this of William James, the arch-heretic of his day, the intellectual nonconformist, the constant protester against everything institutionalized in action and belief, the valiant fighter for causes which if not lost were unpopular and conventionally ignored Such are the exi gencies and dangers of a
