THE METAPHYSICAL CLUB A Story of Ideas in America

by | Read by Henry Leyva

History • 7 hrs. • Abridged • © 2001

The subject of this work is American intellectual history from 1880 through the early 1900s, viewed through the works and relationships of William James; John Dewey; Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.; and Charles Sanders Peirce. This abridgment gives a worthwhile perspective of American history and the development of legal and philosophical ideas that would shape America's future. Much of the content of this book is dense and intellectual--not a good choice for casual listening. The themes of the book are not well focused, and this quality accentuates the impression that narrator Henry Leyva is reading lines without understanding what he's saying. S.E.S.
