Clarendon Press, Kuklick's book provides an excellent short introduction to philosophical thinking in America. Although focused on serious critical analysis of representative thinkers, the book also places philosophers and philsophy in a continually changing American society.
The careful reader will come away with a much better sense of why philosophical thinking has been important and why it is so marginalized at the start of the twenty-first century. Seller Inventory Ships with Tracking Number! Buy with confidence, excellent customer service!. Seller Inventory n.

Part I deals with speculative thought in America from to There are separate chapters on Jonathan Edwards, who is the only one in the bunch who comes across as worth reading, philosophy and politics, the theological disputes involving Joseph Bellamy and Nathaniel William Taylor, collegiate philosophy from John Witherspoon to Noah Porter, and innovative amateurs, in particular James Marsh.
Part II deals with the age of pragmatism from to and sees Darwin as the critical factor in the demise of the religious orientation of American philosophers. It is here that the book comes to life.
