Cognition and Work: A Study Concerning the Value and Limits of the Pragmatic Motifs in the Cognition of the World – eBook PDF

Max Scheler’s Cognition and Work, (PDF) first appeared in German in 1926, only two years before his death. The first part of the ebook provides one of the earliest critical analyses of American pragmatism, an evaluation that would come to have a crucial impact on the reception of pragmatism in Germany and western Europe. The second part of the work includes Scheler’s phenomenological account of perception and the experience of reality, an account that is as original as both Merleau-Ponty and Husserl’s phenomenologies of perception. Scheler intends to show that the modern mechanistic view of nature fails to account for the dynamic relation that not only the human being but all living beings have to the environment they reside.

Available in English translation for the first time, Cognition and Work: A Study concerning the Value and Limits of the Pragmatic Motifs in the Cognition of the World pushes the boundaries of phenomenology as it is traditionally understood and provides insight into Scheler’s distinct metaphysics. This ebook is essential reading for those interested in phenomenology, perception, pragmatism, and living beings in their relation to the natural world.


Together with Scheler’s mature account of perception as a value-laden experience of living beings, this key text contains his complicated assessment of the shortcomings and contributions of pragmatism as a type of knowing.” —Daniel O. Dahlstrom, author of The Heidegger Dictionary
