From Nature to Experience: The American Search for Cultural Authority

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

£27.95
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

In this remarkable work, Roger Lundin seeks the source of American moral and cultural authority in the shift from nature to experience figured in the thought of Ralph Waldo Emerson. While the pragmatic tradition concludes that experience must generate the very light that will lead us out of its own darkness, From Nature to Experience returns to religion for illumination and truth. This is a story of nineteenth-century sources and twenty-first century consequences in which literature, history, philosophy, and theology are joined in order to form a truly original critique of American culture.
