"A picture of American thought in the past half century, with highlight on the five constructive thinkers who stand out not only for their individual achievements, but because of an affinity - their common revolt against formalism - which unites them in a natural kinship. Broadly speaking, Dewey, Holmes, Veblen, Beard, and Robinson gave foundation and substance to the growth of American liberalism, the main theme of this distinguished study." - dj.
