Show Summary Details


This chapter presents an essay on the impact of cultural formulations on the intellectual sector in America. It suggests that with all the massive cultural reformulations aimed at developing the dominant metaphors for world culture, one can find in America the perils and fruits of original attitudes not institutionalized elsewhere. It highlights the confusion that frequently exists between the analysis of American philosophy and the philosophical analysis of American culture.
