Summary

The reader will find that I combine hearty enthusiasm for the philosophical traditions of my country with sharp partial disagreement with nearly all their representatives. My effort throughout my career has been to think about philosophical, that is, essentially a priori or metaphysical, issues, using the history of ideas as a primary resource.

"This is the second of two volumes dealing with the history of philosophy, especially of metaphysics. The first, Insights and Oversights of Great Thinkers, discusses some thirty European philosophers, from Democritus to Wittgenstein and Merleau-Ponty. In both volumes I try to learn and teach truth about reality by arguing, in a fashion, with those who in the past have sought such truth." -- Charles Hartshorne

In a remarkable tour de force, Charles Hartshorne presents a lively and illuminating study of what major American philosophers have said about creativity. With a special talent for perceiving and elegantly expressing the essence of a position, Dr. Hartshorne details his reactions to friend and foe, demonstrating that philosophy at its best is dialogue. Noting that metaphysics is a major theme in the American philosophical tradition, he states that "nowhere has the topic been more persistently and searchingly investigated than in this country."

Charles Hartshorne is the author of Omnipotence and Other Theological Mistakes.Whitehead's Philosophy, Creative Synthesis and Philosophic Method, A Natural Theology of Our Time, and The Logic of Perfection and Other Essays in Neoclassical Metaphysics, also published by SUNY Press. Dr. Hartshorne is past president of the Western Division of the American Philosophical Association, the Metaphysics Society of America, the Charles Peirce Society, the Society for Philosophy of Religion, and the Southern Society for Philosophy and Psychology.
