Morris R Cohen was the first Russian born Jew to make it in American intellectual circles Highly regarded in his day as a professional philosopher and as a secular moralist Cohen served as an exemplar for what it meant to be an intellectual and a liberal br br He was a teacher of legendary charisma and influence at the City College of New York and at the New School for Social Research Among his students were many of the most prominent scholars and writers of the generation following his own including Lewis Feuer Sidney Hook Ernest Nagel Paul Goodman Louis Finklestein Joseph P Lash William Barrett Bertram Wolfe Morton White and Paul Weiss br br Cohen was so distinctly a creature of his own time that his work was unable to attract much attention in the s s and s One purpose of this book is to discover the sources of Cohen s appeal in earlier decades and to assess his role in American intellectual history br br Hollinger critically analyzes the full range of Cohen s contributions to metaphysics jurisprudence the philosophy of history and the philosophy of science This last subject is of special importance because Cohen was one of the founders of this branch of philosophy in its modern form He was a powerful exponent of the expanding scientific culture in the United States generally although he resisted most efforts to scientize the non sciences or to harden the soft sciences into intellectual inflexibility, The role of liberalized ecumenical Protestantism in American history has too often been obscured by the more flamboyant and orthodox versions of the faith that oppose evolution embrace narrow conceptions of family values and continue to insist that the United States should be understood as a Christian nation In this book one of our preeminent scholars of American intellectual history examines how liberal Protestant thinkers struggled to embrace modernity even at the cost of yielding much of the symbolic capital of Christianity to more conservative evangelical communities of faith br br If religion is not simply a private concern but a potential basis for public policy and a national culture does this mean that religious ideas can be subject to the same kind of robust public debate normally given to ideas about race gender and the economy Or is there something special about religious ideas that invites a suspension of critical discussion These essays collected here for the first time demonstrate that the critical discussion of religious ideas has been central to the process by which Protestantism has been liberalized throughout the history of the United States and shed light on the complex relationship between religion and politics in contemporary American life br br i After Cloven Tongues of Fire i brings together in one volume David Hollinger s most influential writings on ecumenical Protestantism The book features an informative general introduction as well as concise introductions to each essay, Revised and updated the fifth edition of this now standard two volume anthology brings together some of the most historically significant writings in American intellectual history Uniquely comprehensive The American Intellectual Tradition includes classic works in philosophy religion social theory political thought economics psychology and cultural and literary criticism Organized chronologically into thematic sections the two volumes trace the evolution of intellectual writing and thinking from its origins in Puritan beliefs to the most recent essays on diversity and postmodernity Pedagogical features include introductions and headnotes to the selections updated bibliographic material throughout and detailed chronologies at the end of each book Addressing such highly contested subjects as race class gender aesthetics political religion and the role of the United States in the world The American Intellectual Tradition Fifth Edition is invaluable for undergraduate courses in intellectual history It is also an excellent supplement for graduate seminars and classes in American history American studies and American literature br Volumes I and II now offer new selections from Roger Williams John Humphrey Noyes Asa Gray Thomas Wentworth Higginson Charles Augustus Briggs Elizabeth Cady Stanton Walter Lippmann Thurman Arnold Henry Luce Henry A Wallace Albert Einstein Aldo Leopold James Baldwin George Kennan Milton Friedman Herbert Marcuse Edward Said Gloria Anzaldua Henry Louis Gates Jr Joan W Scott Samuel Huntington and Carl Sagan, American intellectual historians need to pay more attention to how elites relate to broader audiences Hollinger s work is in the vanguard of recent intellectual history and it is a joy to observe a true intellectual in discourse with his peers History Reviews of Books
