From the Publisher:

Bruce S. Silver and Nancy A. Stanlick have produced two volumes that present selections from American philosophy, 1720 to the present, and interpretative essays on important philosophers, social reformers, and political activists working throughout the same period. Volume II concentrates on some major thinkers in the history of American philosophy and speculative thought.

Features of Philosophy in America: Interpretive Essays

  • Coverage of principal figures, philosophers, and speculative thinkers-Includes discussions of Jonathan Edwards, Thomas Paine, John Adams, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, John Dewey, and many others.
  • A central emphasis-Shows readers that American philosophy is remarkably rich and varied, and that there is more to it than what begins with the pragmatists.
  • A selective and representative approach-Volume II concentrates on some major thinkers in the history of American philosophy and social thought. It examines certain important philosophers' theories, theses, and arguments in order to acquaint students with a rich philosophical heritage that other texts and narratives often ignore.

The selected works in Volume I represent some of the varied and persistent trends in the development of American thought-historically significant and important as they point to the development of ideals and expectations that characterize the American experience.
