Chapter Summary

The paper explores Putnam’s denial of the “fact/value dichotomy.” After attempting to identify the main themes in this aspect of Putnam’s thought, I explore its implications for our understanding of epistemic evaluation and also consider its relations to some similar moves by other philosophers in the pragmatist tradition. The final section examines an argument of Putnam’s which is sued to suggest that such a dichotomy can be self defeating when applied to epistemic evaluation.
