Pragmatism is a recent movement in philosophy in the field of epistemology, that has attracted world-wide attention. It is my purpose in this paper; first, to give an historical sketch of pragmatism, the development of the movement; second, to give a statement of what the movement is; third, to consider the criticism brought against it; fourth and in conclusion, to give a critical estimate of the permanent elements in pragmatism.
