This study proposes to (1) set forth, in a brief way, the gradual evolution of pragmatism from about 1905 down to the present, (2) to clearly define pragmatism and to differentiate between it and some other "isms" having philosophical significance, (3) and to show how pragmatism has made for itself a place in the modern school curriculum.
