Torjus Midtgarden's arbeid fokuserer på Amerikansk Pragmatisme og korleis denne er relevant for sosial og politisk teori i dag. Han har dei siste åra undersøkt korleis både Klassisk Pragmatisme (John Dewey) og Ny-Pragmatisme (Robert Brandom) utviklar ulike perspektiv frå Hegels filosofi, og han har studert korleis Deweys pragmatisme spesielt kan gje bidrag til Kritisk Sosial Teori (Axel Honneth, James Bohman). Sammen med tyske og franske sosiologar og filosofar utforskar han for tida Deweys pragmatisme i høve til Amartya Sens Kapabilitetstilnærming. Fokuset ligg her på ein argumentasjon for korleis individs kapabilitetar kan sjåast på som avhengige av kollektive kapabilitetar og av transaksjonar med ikkje-menneskeleg natur.
