From Nature to Experience: The American Search for Cultural Authority (Paperback)

£24.95
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Roger Lundin traces how pragmatism and its reliance on experience eclipsed nature and religion as the ultimate moral authority. He explores why Americans prize experience as highly as they do, what they build out of it in works of culture and their daily lives, how they manage to make sense of it, and where people might turn when they reach the limits of experience.
