The Pragmatist Turn
Religion, The Enlightenment, And The Formation Of American Literature
de Giles Gunn
Sobre o livro
Offers a new critical history of the way seventeenth-century religion and the eighteenth-century Enlightenment influenced the formation of subsequent American writing. This shaping was dependent on their pragmatic refiguration less as systems of belief and thought than as frames of reflection and structures of feeling, what Giles Gunn calls spiritual imaginaries.
