The Metaphysical Club: A Story of Ideas in America - Louis Menand - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of The Metaphysical Club:

The thinkers that created the philosophy and politics of America, after the Civil War.

My favorite Louis Menand quote from the book:

It is certitude that leads to violence.

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What is truth?

Do you believe struggle is necessary?

My review of The Metaphysical Club:

An in-depth look at the collaboration between some of America's greatest thinkers.

A convergence of philosophy, psychology, natural history, and law.

I love the term belletrist.
