In Toward a Pragmatist Sociology, Robert Dunn explores the relationship between the ideas of philosopher and educator John Dewey and those of sociologist C. Wright Mills in order to provide a philosophical and theoretical foundation for the development of a critical and public sociology. Dunn recovers an intellectual and conceptual framework for transforming sociology into a more substantive, comprehensive, and socially useful discipline.
Robert G. Dunn is Professor Emeritus of Sociology, California State University, East Bay. He is the author of Identifying Consumption: Subjects and Objects in Consumer Society (Temple), and Identity Crises: A Social Critique of Postmodernity.
