Philosophical pragmatism has aroused renewed interest among philosophers over the past few decades. Its philosophical outlook is now an almost natural starting point for researchers in the humanities and social sciences. Pragmatism has in recent years attracted a number of Nordic philosophers and scholars working in different fields within philosophy and related subjects.
Initiated in 2006, the Nordic Pragmatism Network has organized dozens of international events in nine countries, including the Nordic countries, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. It was also key contributor to the establishment of the European Pragmatism Association, which brings together the different groups working on pragmatism within Europe.
