Dear Daniel Green, finding and reading your work n this site has meant a lot to me and I just wanted to thank you for your thinking.

Though I'm writing in what feels like a vacuum I'm not and your articulation and contextualizing of ideas and approaches that are similar to mine gives me the feeling that there is an ear for work outside the dominant frame ... so thank you very much, your work has reinspired me and provided a 'virtual' lifeline. I will keep going.

wishing you all the best Majena

Daniel Green

Thank you very much for your nice words. Let me know where your work can be found and I'll lend an ear myself.

The project of literary pragmatism is to “bend” the vocabulary of linguistic philosophy so that, as Dewey would put it, it becomes more consonant with the “rhythms” of experience.

In all sincerity, I have achieved this. I call the resulting form of the work an “apomary.” So far, my queries to agents and publishers, regarding an “apomary about neopragmatism,” haven’t generated too much excitement. I first need the backing of pragmatist literary critics, who might attest to the groundbreaking nature of this work.

The Prelude is less than 800 words. I’d like to send it to you. You’d be able to ascertain in a couple of minutes whether the apomary is worth a closer look.

Best wishes,

Dan Green

Sure, go head and send it.
