(p.206) Thirteen American Loss in Cavell's Emerson
Philosophy Americana

Douglas R. Anderson

Fordham University Press

This chapter examines the ways in which Dewey does and does not play a role in the context of Cavell's “Conditions.” Cavell's neglect of James and resistance to Dewey seem more peripheral than focal to his purposes. But the neglect and resistance are there, and they stand out to any reader of Emerson who is also schooled in the history of American thought: James simply does not appear, and Dewey is dismissed as inadequate.

Keywords:   Conditions, Cavell, American thought, Emerson
