Clarence Irving Lewis (1883-1964).

Student of William James. A key figure in the rise of analytic philosophy in the United States. A mentor to Sellars and Quine.

A self-proclaimed neokantian and conceptual pragmatist. He is a paradigm pragmatist under Cheryl Misak’s narrative of the history of pragmatism, yet is not a pragmatist at all under Rorty’s redescription of pragmatism.
