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 Metaphysical Club:

What is truth?

Do you believe struggle is necessary?

My review of 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.
