“The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato.”
–Alfred North Whitehead

American Philosophy and Rudolf Steiner, ed. By Robert McDermott

    Fascinating, Matt. I’ll definitely try to pick up a copy of this in the coming months, if possible!

    Essays that struck me with interest immediately:

    Deliberate Lives, Deliberate Living,
    Prophetic Philosophers, and
    John Dewey’s Project for Saving the Appearances.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Reblogged this on Evolutionary Landscapes and commented:
    For those who have wondered what a cross-pollination of American thought and Rudolf Steiner’s anthroposophy might look like, you’re in luck. Matthew Segall just shared these photos on his blog, announcing the publication fo American Philosophy and Rudolf Steiner.

    Of particular interest to me is “John Dewey’s Project for “Saving the Appearances,”” and “Deliberate Lives, Deliberate Living: Thoreau and Steiner in Conversation.” Like Jeff Carriera over at Evolutionary Philosophy, the books suggests a strong connection between American thought and a newly blooming evolutionary worldview. I look forward to reading this down the road – and hopefully providing a review!
