A Book to Read and Love - The Metaphysical Club: A Story of Ideas in America - Louis Menand


A short summary of The Metaphysical Club:

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

My favorite quote from the book:

It is certitude that leads to violence.


Questions to ponder while reading The Metaphysical Club:

What is truth?

Do you believe struggle is necessary?

My thoughts about the book:

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.
