Editorial Reviews

Review

"Nowhere else, that I am aware of, can one read such an apt commingling of Emerson and Ellison, jazz and writing, Williams, Stein, Baraka, and O'Hara. . . . [Emancipating Pragmatism] is a remarkable synthesis of these figures who have been the subjects of disparate studies before, but whose linkages through philosophical approaches to pragmatism have never been so carefully examined in parallel."--Aldon Nielsen, author of Black Chant: Languages of African-American Postmodernism


"Michael Magee has written a book about the links between pragmatism, Emerson, jazz and experimental writing that is so wonderfully playful that Dewey could only have admired it. James may have tried to mimic it. But only Santayana could have pulled it off. Okay, not even Santayana, perhaps! It is a gem."
—Henry Levinson, Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society
