Overview


Revised and updated, the sixth 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 American 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, Sixth 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.

Volumes I and II now offer new selections from Charles Chauncy, Lester Frank Ward, Joseph Wood Krutch, David Lilienthal, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Peter Drucker, Ayn Rand, Wilfred Cantwell Smith, Harold John Ockenaga, C. Wright Mills, Harold Cruse, John Rawls, Catherine Mackinnon, Sam Harris, and Stewart Brand. The sixth edition also offers updated and expanded commentary and citations in the introductions and headnotes.
