4.   Menand, Louis   THE METAPHYSICAL CLUB A Story of Ideas in America   Picture
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux New York. Very Good, 2002, Later Printing, Paperback 0374528497 Used in trade paperback. A clean, tight copy. Minor edgewear, crease to the front cover. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 546 pages; The Metaphysical Club was an informal group that met in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1872, to talk about ideas. Its members included Oliver Well Holmes, Jr., future associate justice of the United States Supreme Court; William James, the father of modern American psychology; and Charles Sanders Peirce, logician, scientist, and the founder of semiotics. The Club was probably in existence for about nine months. No records were kept. The one thing we know that came out of it was an idea an idea about ideas. This book is the story of that idea. Holmes, James, and Peirce all believed that ideas are not things "out there" waiting to be discovered but are tools people invent like knives and forks and microchips to make their way in the world. They thought that ideas are produced not by individuals, but by groups of individuals that ideas are social. They do not develop according to some inner logic of their own but are entirely depent like germs on their human carriers and environment. And they thought that the survival of any idea depends not on its immutability but on its adaptability.
