Description
&"Wilshire celebrates the heart of a revived American philosophical tradition construed as marking a way of life, a healing reabsorption in what Emerson called the 'always circular power returning into itself.&' Philosophy as a path of wisdom, a way of life, links up to 'existential&' ways of marking time and timelessness, of finding ecstatic experience, of finding one&'s way with others. It aims to 're-enchant&' a distinctly 'disenchanted&' world.... American philosophy and culture may not reform itself tomorrow, but it is not absurd to find hope for such reform in Wilshire&'s book. In these straited times, it breathes fresh air into our lungs.&" &-Edward F. Mooney, Journal of Speculative Philosophy
