George Santayana (1863–1952), a Spanish-American philosopher, is an influential personage on the cultural stage in English- and Spanish-speaking countries. His numerous books and papers on topics as varied as epistemology, ontology, aesthetics, ethics, anthropology, value theory, and American studies, along with his best-selling novel, his sophisticated poetry, and his famous autobiography, make him a vivid and profound source of reflection on the history of American and European thought, as well as a stimulus for future work. Santayana’s exceptionality was appreciated by William James and Josiah Royce, his most eminent colleagues in Harvard University’s Department of Philosophy, and has been discussed by such respected authors as John Dewey, Bertrand Russell, Charles Hartshorne, Eric Voegelin, Alfred Schutz, Richard Rorty, Hilary Putnam, Arthur Danto, and Ferdinand Savater, among others. This book aims to understand Santayana by considering his often provocative views on America. Other scholars have reconstructed his thought at various times and in a variety of ways, but no one has yet considered Santayana’s approach toward America in a serious and profound way (at least not in the English language). This book attempts to convince the reader that the impartiality of Santayana’s philosophy, its transcendence of cultural limits and mental borders, makes it a living philosophy, and that this is the strongest aspect of Santayana’s thought.

This classic work, winner of the 1973 National Book Award in Philosophy and Religion and Christian Century's choice as the Religious Book of the Decade (1979), is now issued with a new chapter by noted religious historian David Hall, who carries the story of American religious history forward to the present day. Praise for the earlier edition: ?An unusual and praiseworthy book. . . . It takes a modern, almost anthropological view of history, in which worship is a part of a web of culture along with play, love, dress, and language.”?B.A. Weisberger, Washington Post Book World ?The most detailed, most polished of the works in its tradition.”?Martin E. Marty, New York Times Book Review ?An intellectual delight that one does not so much read as savor.”?America ?The definitive one-volume study by the leading authority.”?Christianity Today ?No one writing or thinking hereafter about America's past will be able to ignore Ahlstrom's magisterial account of the religious element.”?American Historical Review

Philosophy of the United States

Anderson begins his book by noting that the shock of 9/11 can in some ways be compared to the shock the Babylonians experienced in 1158 B.C. or the Romans experienced in 410 A.D. These ancient civilizations, the lessons learned from them, and the spiritual impulses they generated (Judaism and Christianity respectively), form the cultural matrix from which the modern philosophy that guided the creation of the United States Constitution emerged. Notable is Anderson s description of how, at the founding, the liberal rationalists and the pietistic revivalists were able to cooperate. This was possible through a sense of common purpose and a general philosophy broad enough to encompass the more specific philosophies of the liberals and conservatives of the day. Through his description of the issues the founding left unresolved and the pursuit of greed and power, Anderson shows how that common purpose has degenerated into the culture wars that threaten to tear the United States apart today.

This unique documentary history brings together manifestos, Supreme Court decisions, congressional testimonies, speeches, articles, book excerpts, pastoral letters, interviews, song lyrics, memoirs, and poems reflecting the vitality, diversity, and changing nature of religious belief and practice in America since 1945.

Issues regarding religion and contemporary American culture are explored in documents about the rise of the evangelical movement and the religious right; the impact of "new" (post-1965) immigrant communities on the religious landscape; the popularity of alternative, New Age, and non-Western beliefs; and the relationship between religion and popular culture. The editors conclude with selections exploring major themes of American religious life at the millennium as well as excerpts that speculate on the future of religion in the United States.
