This introductory chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to discuss American life with the aim of locating places in the wider culture where professional philosophy in the distinctively American tradition can become a matter of debate. It hopes to find places where philosophy happens in nonprofessional guises, in other words in cultural areas such as country music, rock ‘n’ roll, and Beat literature.

Keywords:   American culture, religious experience, political engagement, country music, rock music, Beat literature
